Easy One Pot Meals – Couscous Royale

I have said before that one of my favourite things about being on holiday in France is their cute little pots of sauce and couscous. Well, I finally got around to making my own version of the Couscous Royale and it is (in my opinion) just as good, if not better, than the one we get from the supermarket. To make the sauce you basically just chuck everything in to a pot and then leave it to simmer away! Serve it with couscous (which literally takes a minute to cook) and you’re off! This is for one person but should easily do two portions anyway. Even so, you can double or even triple things up and then freeze the sauce for a rainy day (so long as the meat was fresh when you made it).


  • chicken thigh (meat taken off the bone)
  • 75g beef, cubed
  • 1 chorizo sausage, diced
  • 1/2 carrot, diced
  • small white onion, diced
  • 1/2 courgette, sliced
  • 1/2 tin of chickpeas
  • 1/2 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 1tsp cumin
  • 1tsp coriander

Fry the onions and beef cubes for around 5 minutes. Add everything else in to the pan and leave over a low heat for 20-30 minutes. Serve with couscous and French bread.
