Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Bring 2 cups of the stock to a simmer in a small saucepan and add the apricots. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan. Add the onions and garlic and cook until soft. Add the allspice and cinnamon and cook for 1 minute. Add the couscous and stock with apricots, cover the pan and let sit for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork and add 1 tablespoon of the butter, the almonds and the honey and season with salt and pepper to taste. 2. Season the cavities of the hens with salt and pepper and fill with the couscous stuffing. Truss the chicken, then rub each with the remaining butter and season with salt and pepper to taste. Season hens on all sides in an oven-proof saute pan and place in oven. 3. Roast for 35-40 minutes. Transfer the hens to a plate. Remove some of the fat from the roasting pan and place on the burner over medium heat. Add the remaining 1 cup of stock and cook, scraping the bottom of the pan until reduced to 1/2 cup. Season with salt and pepper.
