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.

This was a really great recipe. I made a few minor changes: I didn't have turnips or carrots, so I subbed zucchini and and extra onions instead. I also didn't use the four cups of water and instead used chicken broth for it all. This tasted amazing and smelled great while cooking. Very easy, too! Thanks for sharing.

This recipe was included in Book#228608. November 4, 2008 -- What can I say about a perfect recipe? The chicken cooked up tender, with a little bit of a crunchy skin, the vegetables all came together into a delicious topping I put over the chicken and couscous, and the broth poured over all made this an absolutely terrific dinner! For the 4 cups of water used to simmer the chicken and veggie mixture, I used 2 cups of chicken broth and 2 cups of water. Other than that, I made the recipe just as stated. The broth over everything, including the couscous, added the crowning touch to this dish. I can't tell you how much we all loved this!! I've made a lot of recipes from RZ and this is one of the very best. Thank you SO much for sharing this recipe!
