Made this for a dinner party, and everyone loved it. Highly recommended. However, I had to make 2 batches of the glaze to coat all the chicken, and I added about two tablespoons of the marmalade to give the sauce a bit more body. The couscous was not required for the dish to come out, so that can be dropped.
