    Annacia's Note:

    I recently discovered this on Epicurious and I'm in love! I think I could have this every night for a week. It's easy and fast enough to do when you get home from work too. I have been having it with some peas to add some green to the plate and iced mint tea. I am posting the original recipe but here are the comments of another user. I have been useing these recomendations: "Natalie from San Francisco, CA on 05/23/06 I love this recipe. One change I make is to use chicken thighs only, cook (boil in stock or saute) until they are about 95% done and then shred them when cool. I add the chicken at the last minute with the other ingredients so it finishes cooking in a couple of minutes. I find the dish is quicker, uses less oil and the spices get more evenly distributed. I usually use a sweeter dried fruit, like prunes or raisins, and a tart fruit, like apricots or cranberries. I've also made this dish with the larger size couscous (could be harder to find) as well as the traditional couscous and I find that the texture of the larger couscous is a nice addition."

      I placed all the ingredients except the couscous into my tagine & cooked for 2 hours. I then remove the chicken & shredded it. I added the couscous to the seasoned broth until absorbed. Very tasty! Made for Photo Tag

      Delicious, different, and easy! I diced the chicken and just cooked it in a skillet instead of cooking it in the oven. I thought the chicken had just the right amount of spice but the couscous could have used a little more.

      well as usual I did a few very minor adjuments to this recipe, seasoned salt was used in place of white salt, also I added some cayenne for heat, increased the amounts slightly and used a mixture of apricots and currents, I also sauteed fresh garlic with the onion, this recipe is right up my alley, I love the combination of flavors, thanks for sharing Annacia!
