Sweet and Spicy Roasted Chicken

with Herbed Couscous

Select Qty: Dinner for


A chili-flecked, honey-imbued marinade spiked with fresh citrus juice gives this chicken from Melissa Clark its fiery, syrupy character. Dates and carrots give the sauce texture and additional sweetness while a garnish of fresh herbs and almonds lends freshness and crunch. The herbed couscous helps to soak up the sauce.
