      The recipe was pretty much followed, although I was more then generous with the amount of raisins used, & the squash turned out beautifully, absolutely wonderful! Another time, though, if & when I make it for my vegetarian son & DIL, I'll be substituting some homemade vegetable broth for the chicken stuff, but that would be just to keep it vegetarian ~ Gotta think about those things since I have friends & relatives who lean that way! Definitely a winner recipe, though, & I'll be making it again, for sure! Thanks for posting it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

      I made this recipe last night in an attempt to do a one week vegetarian challenge. I didn't have cousous so I made brown rice instead. I also brushed on the butter and brown sugar mixture to the acorn squash prior to baking. I love the caramelization on the squash. I gave it four stars because the acorn squash actually requires a longer baking time (in my experience anyways). It probably needs more like 40-45 minutes. The flavors were terrific. I served it with roasted broccoli. This is definitely a keeper.
