    From the Test Kitchen

    In this dish, seared chicken breasts coated with za'atar seasoning top a bed of fluffy couscous, smoky romesco sauce, and a trio of sautéed carrots, onion, and spinach. A dollop of tzatziki brings cooling balance to the bold flavors.

    Za'atar Chicken & Romesco Couscous with Tzatziki
    Title
    • 2 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
    • ½ cup Yellow Couscous
    • 1 Red Onion
    • 1 oz Castelvetrano Olives
    • 3 oz Baby Spinach
    • 2 cloves Garlic
    • 3 Tbsps Romesco Sauce (Contains Almonds)
    • ½ cup Tzatziki (Cucumber-Yogurt Sauce)
    • 6 oz Carrots
    • 1 Tbsp Za'atar Seasoning (Sumac, Aleppo Pepper, Sesame Seeds, Salt, Thyme & Whole Oregano)
    • 2 Tbsps Dried Currants
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Halve, peel, and thinly slice the onion. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Pit and roughly chop the olives.

    Cook the couscous
    2 Cook the couscous

    In a medium pot, combine the couscous, currants, a big pinch of salt, and 3/4 cup of water; stir to combine. 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. Add the romesco sauce; stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cover to keep warm.

    3 Cook the vegetables & finish the couscous

    Meanwhile, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced carrots and sliced onion in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the spinach, chopped garlic, and chopped olives; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, until softened and the spinach is wilted. Turn off the heat. Transfer to the pot of cooked couscous; stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Wipe out the pan.

    4 Cook the chicken & serve your dish

    Pat the chicken dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the za'atar to coat (you may have extra). In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned chicken. Cook 6 to 7 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Transfer to a cutting board; when cool enough to handle, slice crosswise. Serve the finished couscous topped with the sliced chicken and tzatziki. Enjoy!
