Recipe facts:
Takes: 25 mins to prepare and 1 hr to cook
Serves: 4 


4 chicken thighs
4 chicken wings
50ml olive oil
1 large red onion, finely sliced
1 large onion, finely sliced
1tsp caster sugar
1 star anise
1 stick cinnamon, broken
1tsp ground coriander
2tsp ground cinnamon
1tsp ground cumin
2tbsp pine nuts, toasted
50g sun-dried tomatoes, drained and sliced
50ml red wine vinegar
300ml water
For the couscous
200g couscous
450ml chicken stock, hot

Heat half of the olive oil in a large casserole dish over a moderate heat until hot. Season then sear the chicken pieces until golden-brown in colour all over, then remove from the dish. Lower the heat a little and add the rest of the olive oil. Sweat the onions for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened.

Reduce the heat to low, sprinkle over the sugar and continue to cook the onions for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they start to caramelize. Increase the heat, then deglaze the dish with the red wine vinegar until it has reduced by half.

Add the cinnamon stick, star anise and ground spices to the dish and continue to cook for 1 minute, stirring at the same time. Add the chicken pieces back to the pan then add the sun-dried tomatoes and water, then cover with a lid. Cook for 20-25 minutes until the chicken is tender.

Meanwhile, prepare the cous cous by placing it in a large, heatproof bowl. Bring the chicken stock to the boil in a saucepan then pour over the couscous. Stir once, then cover tightly with clingfilm. Leave to one side for 5-6 minutes until the stock has been absorbed.

Remove the clingfilm and fluff the grains with fork and then stir in the olive oil and some seasoning. Remove from the chicken from the heat and stir through the pine nuts and chopped parsley. Adjust the seasoning as necessary. Spoon the cous cous onto serving plates and top with the chicken tajine before serving.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
