1 tablespoon olive oil
1 whole chicken, 3 to 3 1/2 pound, cut into 8 pieces
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 onion, chopped
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, chopped
1/2 teaspoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 1/2 cups canned low sodium chicken broth
1 cup canned crushed tomatoes in thick puree
1 cup canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 zucchini, cut into 1/4-inch slices
3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
4 cups cooked couscous




In a large pot, heat the oil over moderately high heat. Season the chicken pieces with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and add them to the pot. Cook, turning, until browned, about 8 minutes in all. Remove. Pour off all but 1 tablespoon fat from the pot.

Reduce the heat to moderately low. Add the onion to the pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, paprika, cumin, oregano, cayenne, and turmeric and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds.

Add the broth, tomatoes, and the remaining 1 1/4- teaspoons of salt, scraping the bottom of the pot to dislodge any browned bits. Add the chicken thighs and drumsticks. Bring to a simmer and cook, covered, for 10 minutes. Add the chicken breasts with any accumulated juices, the chickpeas, and the zucchini and bring back to a simmer. Cook, covered, until the chicken and zucchini are just done, about 12 minutes longer. Add the parsley and lemon juice and serve over the couscous.


Wine Recommendation: The aromatic spices in this dish are best with an assertive, flavorful wine; color is almost secondary. For a red, try a wine from the indigenous South African grape, pinotage. For white, try a Tokay Pinot Gris from Alsace in France.

Traditional Szechuan dishes are often quite spicy, but we’ve given this recipe only a slight dose of heat. If your taste runs to the incendiary, make yours hotter by adding more red-pepper flakes.
