Chicken With Salsa and Couscous

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

I made this using Pace Picante Sauce but any salsa will do, I also added in 2 teaspoons crushed red chili flakes for some heat.

This is delicious! I make it with raisins and shredded, cooked chicken breast and simmer it in the sauce for 10 minutes.
