Top Review by smellyvegetarian

If anything, this gets 4 stars for ease and speed of preparation! DH said he thought it was good, and when I told him it took just over 10 minutes he declared it excellent LOL! We both thought it was a touch bland, but that was easily remedied with salt and pepper at the table. I used an extra 1/2 c peas, 98% fat free soup, and I mixed in the couscous before serving. We agreed that we might increase the amount of chicken next time, as it seemed to be heavy on the couscous. I might also try to remedy the spice issue by using chicken broth instead of water in the sauce (and maybe to cook the couscous). This is definitely a keeper, though, and I envision it being go-to easy comfort food in the winter time when nothing will do but curry :). Thanks for posting, Desperada!
