Arroz de açafrão e passas com frango frito e salada de cuscuz (Saffron rice and raisins with fried chicken and couscous salad)


Fried chicken is like a classic, i probably dont even need to tell how its done...
...but i will anyway :D okkk...so, grab a chicken, cut it in small pieces and season it with thyme, sea salt, powder garlic and olive oil. Let it marinate for at least 15 minutes (you can go down a few posts or type in the blog's search to find the marinating time chart)
While you wait, bake some couscous following the instructions on the package or just double the couscous used with water, boil it for 8 minutes, turn off the heat and close the pan until the couscous grows. Dice tomatoes, cucumbers depending on how many people are you serving it too...put some sweet corn and chopped mozzarella. Mix it all together and add the couscous. Season it with olive, lemon juice and salt.
Start frying the chicken in a deep pan.
Chop 1 onion and 3 garlic cloves into a pan with 1 tablespoon of olive oil , add 4 cups of water and 2 tablespoons of saffron, let it boil...then add the rice, let it cook for 10 to 15 minutes.
Easy wasn't it?! 
Bon Appetit
