Still searching for what to make for dinner tonight? How does juicy, golden-brown chicken, nestled in perfectly fluffy couscous, all simmered in a thyme-scented cream sauce sound? Oh, and did I mention there’s bacon? Yeah, you’re gonna wanna bookmark this one.

This recipe does require a bit of prep work upfront — you have to cook the couscous according to package instructions, crisp up bacon in the skillet, and then brown the chicken thighs in the residual bacon grease — but after that it’s smooth sailing. Once you have all your elements ready, you just layer and simmer until all the flavors meld and everything is cooked through.

The best part about one-pan meals (besides the easy cleanup) is bringing the skillet right to the table and letting everyone serves themselves. Just make sure you have some of those crispy bacon crumbles reserved for sprinkling on top!
