Great recipe! I had a plum tree in my yard. So, with an abundance of plums to work with, I came across this recipe. Such a great combination of flavors! I've made it a few times and it turns out great every time. Thanks!

  2. Add the chicken and toss to coat; refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 4 hours.

  4. Preheat a grill or grill pan to medium.
  5. Thread the chicken, plums and onion onto 8 skewers.
  6. Grill the kebabs, turning occasionally and basting frequently with the marinade during the first 6 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through, 12 to 15 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups water to a boil.
  8. Stir in the olive oil and then the couscous, cover, remove from the heat and let stand for 5 minutes.
  9. Fluff the couscous with a fork, add the almonds and toss. Serve the couscous alongside the kebabs.
