    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Caramelizing the onions is what brings out extra flavor to this dish --- adjust the amount of cayenne pepper to suit heat level, make certain that the chicken broth is *hot* before adding to the recipe :)

      really nice! i reduced the couscous and broth by one-third, but left all other measurements the same. i didn't wind up using any pepper-- it tasted fine without. i also didn't have any currants on hand, so i just did without. it was still great.

      I really liked this dish when I made it, but it was even better the next day cold. I decided to not use the olive oil and cumin( I do not like it). I also substituted dried cranberries for the currants. I made this earlier in the day and just added the hot couscous at serving time. This would be a great make ahead dish for a buffet. Thanks for the recipe.
