This was so easy and delicious! I scaled for 6 servings so I had to cook the couscous in a separate pot (but I was still sure to scrape the good stuff from the pan). I was worried about the sauce being too sweet (or too vinegarry -- my husband does not like that) but it was neither! It was just right. The apricots were a wonderful addition to the couscous. I served with steamed broccoli.

Excellent! This is so easy and so good! I've made it twice - the first time, since I had no dried apricots, I omitted them and increased the amount of preserves. It was good, but a bit too sweet. The second time, I used the specified amount of preserves and added both golden raisins and some slivered almonds I had left over from baking. Delicious!

Easy to prepare and great new tastes for chicken. Makes great leftovers, too!

We love this! We've made it several times and have to double it so there are enough for leftovers.

This recipe was surprisingly good! I didn't care for it much at first, but as I continued eating, it really grew on me. Thanks for a quick, simple recipe.

Followed e/thing but black pepper (ran out) and I think I just don't like apricots. Easy recipe and quick, please try if you enjoy apricots. Had too much liquid at the end, so maybe simmer longer?

Very good. I wasn't quite sure what to expect with this. My 4 year old loved it. She cleaned her plate. I served the chicken with some rice I had leftover instead of the couscous. I also doubled the sauce, which was a little much for the two chicken breast halves that I made. It made plenty of sauce for the rice. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

I doubled the recipe and it seemed that there was too much liquid so I kept having to add more couscous so we ended up with way too much couscous for the amount of chicken. I used sugar-free apricot preserves, but the balsamic vinegar just didn't seem to cut the sweetness quite enough. If I make this again I think I would add maybe some rosemary and some toasted walnuts just to give it some more flavor. Sorry, ciao, but I just didn't love this one.

Great! This tasted wonderful. I had couscous already made so I didn't use the chicken broth. I also didn't have any apricots, but the preserves (I used sugar free) and vinegar made for a wonderful marinade for the chicken. The pepper is a must here as well! Quick, easy, elegant and delish! Thanks!
