Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups sliced carrots (about 4 medium)
  • 1 large red bell pepper, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 5 cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 can (15 oz) garbanzo beans or chick peas, drained, rinsed
  • 1/3 cup uncooked Israeli couscous
  • 2 cups shredded deli rotisserie chicken (from 2-lb chicken)
  • Fresh cilantro leaves, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    In 4-quart saucepan or Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Cook carrots, bell pepper and garlic in oil about 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until carrots are crisp-tender.

    Stir in remaining ingredients except chicken and cilantro. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in chicken; simmer 5 minutes longer or until carrots are tender. Sprinkle individual servings with cilantro.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Israeli couscous, also called pearl couscous, is made from semolina or wheat flour. Larger than traditional couscous, it is cooked more like pasta and has a chewy texture, similar to barley.
  • tip 2
    For a bold taste experience, top each serving with a spoonful of harissa, the spicy and complex Middle Eastern condiment. Offer warm naan on the side.
