    I was hesitant about trying this recipe since I'm not a fan of raisins or garbanzo beans. I'm glad I did because it is very tasty! From Sara's Secrets on the Food Network.

      Add the garlic and Greek seasoning and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
    4. 4
      Add the tomatoes, garbanzo beans, broth, bay leaves and pepper. Stir well. Bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
    5. 5
      Add the chicken, lower the heat to medium, and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Stir frequently to prevent sticking. (The mixture will thicken.).
    6. 6
      Remove the bay leaves and discard. Stir in the olives and lemon juice and serve immediately over the couscous.
    7. 7
      To make the couscous:.
    8. 8
      While the stew is simmering, bring the broth, olive oil and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the couscous and raisins, cover, and remove the pan from heat.
    9. 9
      When the moisture has been absorbed, about 5 minutes, sprinkle the cinnamon and orange juice over the couscous. Fluff with a fork to combine the flavors and loosen the couscous. Do not stir.

      Whatever you do, do not skip this couscous. It is absolutely delicious and I would be happy to have it by it's self. I did use much less than ask for though, 1/2 a cup of couscous and a very light 1 cup of broth. The serving sizes are more than generous. I made a 2 serving size and have enough for 4! I discovered at the last min that I was out of garbanzo beans and used Romano beans in their place and they worked fine for a stand in. I cooked and shredded two thighs and used that for the chicken. I at least doubled the cinnamon in the couscous and added 4 or 5 good heavy shakes (from a shaker container) to the stew as well. All in all this is a very enjoyable meal that I will certainly make again.
