Recipe: Couscous Verrines with Chicken and Coriander

The 12 first courses lunch
April 22, 2011

For my 12 first courses lunch I choose many pasta recipes, but also rice, crepes, a soup... and of course couscous.
It's a recipe inspired by the Moroccan tagine, and I served it in transparent crystal glasses.

This is a recipe from the 12 first courses lunch, so the doses are for small samples. Keep that in mind if you are considering only one first course.
