About this recipe: Here is a middle eastern style roast chicken with a fig and pistachio couscous stuffing.It's basted with a honey- spiced lemon marinade to keep the meat deliciously moist. A leafy salad with fresh oranges would make a great side dish.
Great meal! I used skinless chicken legs and thighs and fresh ginger (didn't have ground ginger). I then grilled them over charcoal. For the Couscous, I used yellow raisins and toasted slivered almonds (didn't have figs or pistacios), The results were fabulous! I will definately make this again. - 10 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
the couscous coating on the outside adds a crunchy texture to the chicken - 04 May 2009 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
