2 tablespoons cooking oil
8 chicken drumsticks
3 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 onion, cut into thin slices
1 turnip, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
6 cups water
3 carrots, cut into 1/4-inch slices
1-2/3 cups canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed (from one 15-ounce can)
1/2 cup flat leaf parsley leaves, packed
1-1/3 cups couscous




In a large deep frying pan or Dutch oven, heat the oil over moderately high heat. Sprinkle the chicken with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and the black pepper. Put the chicken in the pan and brown well, about 8 minutes in all. Remove. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the fat. Reduce the heat to moderately low.

Add the onion and turnip and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste, paprika, cumin, cayenne, and 2 1/4 teaspoons of the salt. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in 4 cups of the water and the carrots. Add the chicken and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook, stirring the mixture two or three times, until the chicken and vegetables are almost done, about 20 minutes. Stir in the chickpeas and the parsley and simmer until the chicken and vegetables are done, about 5 minutes longer.

Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, bring the remaining 2 cups water to a boil. Add the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and the couscous. Cover. Remove the pot from the heat and let the couscous stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Serve the stew with its broth over the couscous.


Wine Recommendation: Often with a complex dish it’s best to serve a simple wine that won’t compete with the food’s flavors. Here, an exuberantly fruity Beaujolais-Villages will effectively highlight the stew.

Crisp Lime Brook Trout

The oil must be really hot when the fish hits the pan for the skin to turn crisp and golden. Shake the pan back and forth on the burner occasionally to keep the trout from sticking to the bottom and tearing the skin.

Brown butter is a sublimely simple sauce. Emphasize the butter’s nutty flavor with pecans, throw in a little sage and parsley, and you have an ideal topping for trout.
