    Nasseh's Note:

    This is a nice change to ordinary chicken & couscous. My very picky daughter said this was the best couscous dish I have made. To save time I used my pressure cooker to cook the chicken.

      Very nice subtle flavours. I was leary of sprinkling the icing sugar on top but did to keep with the recipe except used less. It melts into the couscous and gives just a bit of sweeteness. I had to add a cup of broth to make the two cups needed for the couscous. Made for Went to The Market Tag Jan 2009
