    poo235's Note:

    From Food and Wine magazine, posted for ZWT3. I haven't tried this yet... "Served on a mound of couscous, with plenty of steaming broth poured over the top, the hearty Moroccan-inspired stew is a flavorful combination of chicken, chickpeas, vegetables, and spices."

      I made this tonight for dinner. I used chicken broth instead of water. Also I had boiled 5 pounds of frozen skinless/boneless chicken breasts and cubed it. I used about 8 ounces of this cooked, cubed chicken to make the recipe and just added it with the veggies later in the recipe. I didn't have a turnip, so used two potatoes. It was delicious

      I made this a fortnight ago with all the set ingrediants. It was yummy. I would use chicken without bone coz it fell off the bone any ways, so i was watching out for bone instead of thouraghly enjoying the meal. The only other thing is i did different was chickpeas not from a can and they were really hard and ruined the meal for me. We did try boiling them before hand but it did not work out. This was the first time i had eaten couscous, mmm i am in love! =]

      4 3/4 stars!!! It's that good! DH and I liked this one a lot. I used a whole chicken, potato instead of turnip as thats what I had, and some fresh mushrooms. I left out the cayenne out of preference and added 3/4 tsp. Baharat Aka Middle East Mixed Spices - the Real Mix I served it atop rice cooked in some of the juices and extra chicken stock to keep it wheat free. The rice was really delicious cooked that way. I sprinkled a little chopped parsley on the top for presentation. This was a GOOD meal I would make again.
