Start the braised chicken
In a small pot (or kettle), bring 1 cup water (double for 4 dinner portions) to a boil. In a large, high-sided pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Pat the chicken dry with paper towel; season with ½ the dukkah and S&P. Cook, partially covered, 4 to 6 min. on one side, until partially cooked. Transfer to a plate, leaving any browned bits in the pan. Reserve the pan.

Finish the braised chicken
Meanwhile, drain and rinse the chickpeas. Zest and juice the lemon. Remove the kale leaves from the stems; thinly slice the leaves into ribbons. In the reserved pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté ½ the kale, 2 to 3 min., until wilted. Add 2 tsp lemon juice, ½ cup water (double both for 4 dinner and lunch portions), the demi-glace, lemon zest and ½ the chickpeas. Return the chicken*, browned-sides up, and cook, partially covered, 4 to 6 min., until cooked through. Set the remaining kale, remaining chickpeas and ½ the chicken aside in the fridge for lunch.

Cook the couscous
Meanwhile, in a large heatproof bowl, combine the couscous and boiling water. Cover and let sit for 10 min. Pick the mint leaves off the stems; roughly chop the leaves. Roughly chop the parsley and cilantro leaves and stems. Combine the herbs in a small bowl. To the bowl of couscous, add ½ the herbs and a drizzle of olive oil. Fluff and set aside in a warm spot. Set the remaining herbs aside in the fridge for lunch.

In a second small bowl, combine the tahini, honey, remaining lemon juice, a drizzle of oil, ¼ cup water (double for 4 dinner and lunch portions), the remaining dukkah and S&P. Set ½ the tahini drizzle aside in the fridge for lunch.
