Heat 1 tsp of oil in a pot over medium heat. Add the chicken thighs and cook until browned, 3/4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Add 1 onion sliced to the pan. Cook until the onion is softened. Add the remaining 1 tsp of cinnamon and cumin and cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds.

Add tin of tomatoes, tin of chickpeas, and 150ml chicken stock, 2 tablespoons coriander and 1 orange cut into slices; bring to a simmer, stirring with a wooden spoon to scrape any browned bits.

Transfer the chicken to a clean plate. Bring the cooking liquid back to a boil; stir in 1 cup of whole wheat couscous.
