      Made some changes (used way less sugar and cooked barley in chicken broth instead of using couscous) but it turned out to be DELICIOUS! What a great recipe, thanks!

      We had this for supper last night and it was wonderful. The glaze for the chicken thickened up nicely and was delicious poured over the couscous. The couscous itself was really good also. This is such a simple recipe to prepare and takes no time at all, its great for those nights of football practice when we get home later. Thanks for the recipe, we will use this alot as we all loved it.
