I was inspired to make this recipe when I bought a bunch of dill from the store. I had no idea what to do with it so I searched for recipes online and picked couple of recipes then modified them. I ended up with this recipe. I like the taste of dill in some dishes or added to salads. I also like using dill seeds in salads and some dishes. Both fresh dill and dry dill seeds have two different flavors that are distinguished and add a nice flavor to any dish.
This recipe is simple but it has four parts that should be done separately. First prepare the chicken, second prepare the dill rub third prepare the couscous and fourth prepare the dill relish.
To complete this meal, I made Dill Relish on the side, that could serve as a refreshing salad too.
