We had this tasty dish for dinner last night. I was out of dates so I used golden raisins in the mix. After the chicken was done cooking I stirred in 1 cup of instant couscous to the sauce. It absorbed the flavors nicely. I then pulled the chicken apart & added it to the couscous. Thanks for a flavorful dinner. Made for Photo Tag
