Very nice combination of flavors! I substituted couscous for the long grain and wild rice, and it turned out great. I cooked 1 cup of cous cous in 1 cup of chicken broth, and followed the recipe exactly after that. I served it with shrimp, and it was a lovely dinner. Made for the Spring 07 pAC event. Thanks for posting Sherrybeth!
