One-pot meals, like this all-in-one chicken thigh, kale and Israeli couscous recipe, are perfect for nights when you want to keep cleanup to a minimum. Look for Israeli couscous—small pearl-shaped pasta made from semolina flour—near other Middle Eastern dry goods in well-stocked supermarkets or specialty-foods stores.

5 Reviews for Chicken Thighs with Couscous & Kale


ABSOLUTELY Delicious!!!! The boyfriend and grandma loved it! We are all looking forward to leftovers! :) However, I made a few adjustments to put my own spin on it:

-Used 6 chicken thighs
-Added smoked paprika, turmeric, garlic salt, and Trader Joes 'Everyday Spice' blend freshly ground.
-Used Trader Joes 'Harvest Grain Blend' instead of cous cous, and a whole sweet onion
-Used about 5cups of chicken/veggie broth
-Cooked on Medium about 45mins

Quick dish, minimal prep& oh it is delicious

Threw together in about 30 minutes, perfect if you have ingredients laying around and growing out in garden. Tasty dish, 3 year old daughter ate it all up

One pot
Yummy and easy

Made this tonight and it was very yummy. I did sear the chicken for a few mins longer as I had fat pieces. Also cooked the whole thing a bit longer to get the couscous fully absorbed. Felt maybe it could use a bit more spice, some crushed red pepper, and maybe some more veggies like carrots or mushrooms. Great for a quick and healthy dish!

Easy/quick, healthy, yummy
Great Go To Busy Family Night Dinner

Tasty Recipe the whole family loved it. Easy to make and clean up was a breeze. Cook the chicken longer and check temp to be sure.

One Pot - Easy Clean Up Satisfied Even the Picky Eater
Easy, delish one-pot meal

Followed the recipe, but added more veggies (sliced cremini mushrooms and cubed butternut squash). Also added some chili powder and cinnamon powder to the spice mix. Got rave reviews from the family!

Fast, easy healthy and tasty,
