This sounds delish. I'm making it this week to go with a Moroccan chicken recipe I found on this site.jencathen in loved it
Made this tonight and it was great. The only difference is I used Stock instead of broth, omitted the raisins (I always do, I don't like raisins except in my cereal), and used one whole box of the 5 minute couscous. I had to increase the stock amount...morejencathen in loved it
This looks so delicious. I'll have to make this one soon.
