Warm the chicken
Preheat the oven to 450°F. On a lined sheet pan, place the confit chicken skin side up; season with ½ the spice blend. Roast, 8 to 10 minutes, until beginning to brown. Switch the oven to broil and cook, 4 to 5 minutes, until golden brown and heated through.

Cook the couscous
While the chicken warms, in a small pot (or kettle), bring 1 cup of water to a boil (double for 4 portions). In a large heatproof bowl, combine the couscous and ½ the garlic with the boiling water; season with S&P. Put a plate on top of the bowl to cover and let sit for 10 minutes. Fluff the cooked couscous with a fork and set aside in a warm spot.

Marinate the grapes
While the couscous cooks, in a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the onions and remaining garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant. Add the grapes and cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 4 minutes, until the grapes begin to brown; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. Add the vinegar and cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until the liquid has slightly reduced. Transfer to a bowl and add 5 tbsp of olive oil (double for 4 portions); season with S&P.

Make the salad
Roughly chop the parsley leaves and stems. In a large bowl, combine the kale with ⅓ of the grapes and marinade. Massage with your hands, 1 to 2 minutes, until the kale is softened. Add the beets and ½ the parsley; season with S&P to taste and stir to combine.

Plate your dish
