I really enjoyed this! I made it with a another recipe (Excite Me Tonight! Chicken!) - the Moroccan Marinade - and the two worked extremely well for me. The only things I changed were the whole wheat couscous (didn't have any) and instead of the capers I used sliced green olives. I was excited that no one else was overly thrilled (mainly, the kids) because that means I can freeze it and have myself some terrific meals when I go back to work!

My first time eating couscous, and I am hooked! I made it for an "Arabian Nights" themed party. It was easy and everyone at the party got to experience couscous for the first time, too. It got rave reviews!
