2 Make the couscous

In a medium pot, combine the couscous, halved tomatoes, chopped garlic, a big pinch of salt, and 3/4 cup of water; heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, turn off the heat. Cover and let stand 6 to 8 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the couscous is tender. Fluff with a fork. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; stir to combine.

Meanwhile, pat the chicken dry with paper towels; place in a bowl. Season with salt, pepper, and enough of the spice blend to coat (you may have extra). Toss to coat. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken and diced pepper in an even layer.

Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the cooked couscous topped with the finished chicken, labneh, and almonds. Enjoy!
