Very nice combination of sweet couscous (but not too), salty and tangy olives, crunchy veggies, & sweet gooey raisins. ("Gooey" was the best word I could think of, but is probably not a very nice-sounding word. Sorry.) I used vegetable stock and served the chicken on the side for the meat-eaters. I sliced up 3 chicken thighs, brushed them with a little oil, salted them, and baked them at 350 for about half an hour. Like another reviewer said, it looks like a long list of ingredients, but it goes together quickly. Delicious! Reviewed for ZWT4.

  2. Combine orange juice and next 7 ingredients (orange juice through black pepper); stir well with a whisk.
  3. Combine the couscous mixture, juice mixture, chicken, and remaining ingredients in a large bowl, and toss well. Garnish with green onions, if desired.
