Reviews for Cranberry Salsa Chicken
"I make something similar but with chicken broth instead of water and currants instead of cranberries. Its my husband's favorite meal!"
"Loved it. I did not have enough cranberry so I added dried raisins and dried blueberries. Made the couscous w/ chicken stock and it was delish."
