Moroccan Chicken

I recently made Moroccan Chicken.  I invented the recipe using ideas from several different sources.  It was a winner with everyone in the family, so I thought I would share the recipe with you.

INGREDIENTS (for 4 people):
2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into pieces
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic
small amount of olive oil for cooking chicken
1 tbsp fresh ginger, minced
1 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne
1 tsp ground tumeric
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 orange, peeled and segments cut into bite-sized pieces
1/2 yellow or red pepper, seeded and chopped
1 can chickpeas

1 1/4 cups couscous
2 cups chicken broth (I used bouillion in boiling water)

1.  cook chicken with onions and garlic in the oil
2.  when the chicken is no longer pink, add all the other ingredients down to the chickpeas.  Add a small amount of water if it gets too dry.
3.  boil the chicken broth and add the couscous, stir and remove from heat.  cover and let sit for 5 minutes.  Then fluff with a fork.
4.  serve the moroccan chicken on the couscous.
