Moroccan Chicken with Chickpeas and Apricots. Couscous with Lemon and Herbs.

... "With James out traveling for last week for work in SFO and the dogs were with his family ... James wanted something different for dinner and he proposed Moroccan food tonight ... he wanted to go out for dinner, but I insisted for us to stay home.

Moroccan Chicken with Chickpeas and Apricots: Paprika. Ground Cumin. Ground Ginger. Cayenne Pepper. Ground Coriander. Ground Cinnamon. Lemon Zest. Lemon Juice. Garlic. Whole Chicken. S & P. OO. Onion. LS Chicken Broth. Honey. Carrot. Chickpeas. Dried Apricots. Cilantro.
Couscous with Lemon and Herbs: EVOO. Shallot. Garlic. LS Chicken Broth. Lemon Zest. Lemon Juice. Couscous. Parsley. S & P.

I dug keep into my cookbook library and found these two recipes from Cook's Illustrated. I thought I needed a tangine to make this, but one doesn't need a tagine to make Moroccan food. James actually searched YouTube and played some Rai music to get into the spirit. There's nothing better to have exotic dinner at home with the one you love most ... especially, not seeing him all week." /puts down my fork and gets James up from the table, pull him close and slows dances with him to the upbeat Rai music
