Finely dice the onions and garlic and sauté in a large pot with the spices – cumin and turmeric. When it starts to give off a fragrant smell, add in the diced chicken. Fry this off for 2 minutes before adding in the tomato, stock, 1 cup of water, chickpeas and the juice of half a lemon. Season and let this simmer for 15 minutes. If it gets to thick too quickly add in more water.
To make the cous cous, boil water and pour over 2 cups of couscous until it is just covered. Let it sit for around three minutes and with a fork, lightly scrape at it until separated. Dice 3 tomatoes, mint, toast the pine nuts and add to the cous cous. Dress with olive oil, lemon, salt and pepper.
