    Posted on March 09, 2021

    This vibrant plant-based Moroccan dish is aromatic, with just a hint of sweetness from the apricots. Deceptively simple, this tantalizing dish is made with simple ingredients. Perfect served on a bed of fluffy couscous!

    Prep time: 25 minutes
    Cook time: 15 minutes
    Serves: 4


    For the Couscous:

    • 1-3/4 cups chicken style or vegetable broth or water
    • 1/2 tsp salt
    • 1 tbsp vegan butter
    • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1-1/2 cups couscous

    For the Sauce:

    • 2 tbsp tamari
    • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
    • 3/4 cup apricot jam or preserve
    • 2 tbsp tapioca starch - alternatively try corn-starch or arrowroot flour
    • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
    • Juice and zest of 1/2 orange


    1. Using your Deliciou Plant-Based Chicken, follow directions on the box and shape into tenders.
    2. In a mixing bowl coat, the tenders in the chicken stock powder. Set aside.
    3. For the couscous, bring broth/water, salt, vegan butter, and oil to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in the couscous, cover tightly with a lid, and remove from heat. Let the couscous steam for 5 minutes. Use a fork to fluff the couscous and break up any clumps. Set aside.
    4. For the sauce, combine sauce ingredients in a mixing bowl and set aside.
    5. In a hot fry pan, sear off and cook chicken tenders. Once browned, add the contents of the sauce onto the tenders, on a low heat, and heat until the sauce thickens.
    6. To serve, plate the couscous, and place the sticky chicken tenders on top and finish with any leftover sauce. Enjoy!
