chicken thighs & couscous

This is one of the meals I like to make when I want something quick & yummy, without much cleanup.

Season chicken with salt, pepper & paprika. Place skin-side down on a rimmed baking pan, and into a 450-degree oven for 10 minutes. Turn over, and cook 10 minutes more.

While the chicken is cooking, make the couscous. For one serving, put 1/2 cup chicken broth in a bowl, and heat it to boiling in the microwave. Then stir in 1/3 cup couscous, and cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap (it's the same principle as cooking it on the stove, except you don't have to wash a pot & lid after). All of the liquid should be absorbed within 5 minutes. Finish it off with some lemon juice and fresh parsley.
