This is my version of the couscous dish served at our local Moroccan restaurant. I used more chicken because I wanted it to be a one-dish meal, and I added dried currants because it just seemed at the time to be the right thing to do. And it was.

Great spice combo and added a pinch of cayenne pepper. I used turkey sausage and black beans instead of chicken and chick peas - it was an excellent dinner. Thanks a bunch. Will try other meats in the crock pot using the spices.
