Doing it in steps:

(Cos[x] + I*Sin[x])^n;  
% // TrigToExp  
Simplify[%, n \[Element] Integers]  
% // ExpToTrig  

(1/2 (-E^(-I x) + E^(I x)) + 1/2 (E^(-I x) + E^(I x)))^n  
E^(I n x)  
Cos[n x] + I Sin[n x]

How by means of Mathematica to transform (Cos [x] +I* Sin [x]) ^n in Cos
[n*x] +I*Sin [n*x]?
