Sonnet Recipe: Middle Eastern Chicken

Brown up a pound of chicken, cut up small,
Then add a tablespoon of chicken stock,
A can of diced tomatoes and, in all
Two cups of frozen pepper mix and rock
That in the skillet till it boils and cook
About two minutes. Then add half a cup
Of raisins and a cup more stock and -- look
Ya gotta have some garlic!* -- then mix up
Some thyme, allspice, cloves and a bay leaf, too;
Black pepper and some cumin. Stir that in
And simmer for just 20 minutes. You
Will dig what then results. Now, I have been
A-draining off some liquid from what's done
To cook the couscous in, but that's me, hon.

Spice amounts:
GARLIC: 2 cloves, minced
THYME (dried): 1 1/2 t
CUMIN: 1 t
CLOVES (ground): 1/8 t
