    3/4 tsp dried thyme
    3/4 tsp ground cumin
    1/4 tsp No Salt
    1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
    2 large boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed
    1 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

1. Combine thyme, cumin, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Sprinkle both sides of chicken with 1/2 of the mixture.

2. Heat 1/2 tbsp. oil in a heavy skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook till golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

3. Add remaining oil and onion to the pan; cook, stirring frequently, until beginning to soften, 2-4 minutes. Stir in couscous and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until couscous is lightly toasted, 1-2 minutes. Add kale and remaining spice mixture; cook, stirring, until kale begins to wilt, 1-2 minutes.
