    Dawn's Note:

    Kind of Chicken Piccata meets Persia. The chicken is seasoned with a lemon caper sauce and served over a fluffy bed of couscous. This is a quick, easy, and tasty dish. Perfect for "What do I do with this chicken scenario."

      This is a good recipe when pressed for time and ingredients. I might add more seasoning salt to give the flavor a little more oomph.
