My husband loves anything curry! And I love anything that's easy! This is IT! We loved it! I used a combination of skinless, boneless chicken breasts and thighs, because we like some dark meat. I also used the olives AND capers, simply because I love capers. But because of that addition, I didn't add any extra salt, as my capers were the great big salty kind. It was lovely over the couscous! A must try for Mediterranean style food lovers!

Wow, this was wonderful! The flavor was subtle but delicious, and the chicken was so moist it just flaked apart. I did add about 1/2 tbsp. hungarian paprika, and I added marinated artichoke hearts at the end since I couldn't find frozen ones. I served this over parmesan couscous with toasted pita bread. Hey, the bf loves it, so that makes it a keeper.

I really liked this easy to make soup/dish. I skipped the couscous and just had it like a thick and delicious soup/stew. Wonderful after a busy day at work. Thanks for sharing!
