Cranberry Salsa Chicken

I made this dish for my fiance once...and he absolutely loved it. Now that we're married, I prepare it for our dinner guests. Everyone likes it, and no one guesses they're eating "healthy". —Amy VanGuilder Dik of Minneapolis, Minnesota

    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.
