    heavenlyherbs's Note:

    Quick, delicious accompaniment to chicken or pork. My husband and I eat way more of this than we should every time I fix it and it is a good way to get fruit into your diet. This makes an impressive side dish that looks like you spent a lot of effort cooking. The herbs that I use is a mix called McCormick's French Country Herbs Roasting Rub, but RecipeZaar doesn't recognize it so I couldn't name it in the ingredients.

      Since the McCormick herbs suggested in the author's recipe are no longer available, I used a combo of savory & thyme. The herbs were a little strong for my taste, so I think next time I'll stick with just parsley since the juice itself (I used lemon) imparted a nice flavor. I felt that the herbs competed a little too strongly with the cranberries, but overall it was a very nice side dish. Thanks!

      Really good couscous. I loved the chicken stock/orange juice. The sweetness of the cranberries paired well with the orange. I also used the orange zest. Thanks so much, we really enjoyed this.
