    I did the chicken and sauce as recipe called but served it with rice. I will definitely make it again.

    Oh, how I wish this had a nutritional count. Still, it looks so good I might try it anyway.

    Followed recipe. Just 2 of us, so I used 1 lb. of thin sliced chicken breast. Usually leave 5 stars for the "WOW" recipes but since my wife really liked it (hard to please) I gave it 5 stars otherwise I probably would rate 4 stars. Will definitely make again.

    Made it just as called for, and loved every bit of it, the chicken, the sauce and the couscous dish. Not difficult at all.
