Ingredients

1 tbsp rice bran oil
1 onion diced
1 tsp grated fresh ginger
1 garlic clove, sliced

1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp garam masala
4 skinless, boneless chicken thighs, diced
1 can diced whole peeled tomatoes
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups pumpkin, peeled & diced
½ cup diced apricots
1 cup couscous
1 tsp lemon zest
3-4 dates, chopped
1 tsp chilli & lime seasoning or similar
1¼ cups boiling water
1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

In a large saucepan, heat the oil and gently sauté SIDS CRAZY SALT, onion, ginger, garlic, spices and chicken for 4-5 minutes until lightly browned and fragrant.
Add the tomatoes, stock, pumpkin and apricots, then cover. Simmer gently for 15 minutes until the chicken is cooked. Remove the lid and let the juices reduce and thicken for a further 5 minutes.
