First, preheat oven to 200°C.

To allow the spices penetrating the meat, make some deep crisscross slashes into the chicken, and rub it with lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper and cumin. Then, place the chicken on a roasting tray and put into the hot oven.

While it is cooking, peel and cut the onions and carrots into chunks, quarter the zucchini.

After around 15 minutes, reduce the heat to 180°C. Add the vegetables to the tray. Continue roasting for a further hour or until cooked through. Once the chicken is perfectly cooked, lift the meat onto a plate and set aside.

Onto a board, roughly chop the vegetables, then tip back into the tray. Pour in ½ liter boiling water. Stir well and make sure to scrape up all the goodness stuck in the bottom of the tray. Add the smoked paprika, ground coriander and drained and chopped roasted red peppers. Bring to a simmer over medium heat and dump in the couscous. Remove from the heat, cover, and let sit for 5–10 minutes or until the couscous has absorbed all of the water.

In the meanwhile, finely chop the fresh mint leaves. When the couscous is ready, add the chopped mint, drizzle with a good lug of extra virgin olive oil and stir well to fluff up the couscous.

Chantal : I got a laptop from Delices d’Annie

I really love local dishes. I spent a lot of time looking for restaurants offering traditional foods. One day, I was invited to my sister’s house for a dinner. She made me enjoy an excellent cassoulet of Castelnaudary topped by grilled duck confit. Knowing that she is not a very good cook, I asked her how she did to get this delicious dish. Without hesitation, she told me her secret, she ordered the meal at Les Délices d’Annie.

Delices d’Annie : great meals directly delivered to you

After this first experience with this southwestern specialty, I decided to have a look at Delices d’Annie catalog. And I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by seeing the delicacies and local dishes presented. In addition, according to the website, all of the products are prepared following old recipes. They immediately made my mouth water. I didn’t wait long to send my first order. I remember it was a snail casserole dish and some meat jelly. I waited impatiently for the arrival of my package. And I was really satisfied with the speed of the delivery and the quality of the food. So, I became one of the most loyal customers of Les Délices d’Annie. I already tasted its duck sausage, braised lamb shanks with beans, fish soup, and some of its tradition terrines and my favorite recipes. And intend to try its other dishes.

I got a laptop as a gift

A few months ago, I got a call telling me that I was nominated to participate in the regular sweepstake that Delices d’Annie’s team organizes to thank loyal customers of the store. Without paying too much attention to that phone call, I continued to do my shopping on the site. Then, one day, the doorbell rang and the delivery man handed me a package. I was speechless when I saw the laptop inside with a congratulation letter from my favorite caterer.

I would like to express my gratitude to the team of this website. Not only, Delices d’Annie allowed me to enjoy authentic dishes, in addition, I got a wonderful gift. Thank you and bravo.
