    The cinnamon caramelized onions perk up an already great couscous. Passive time includes 30-60 minute marinade time.

      I was a little nervous about the cinnamon onions so halved the amount of cinnamon and this worked well for us. It was such an easy recipe to put together. I also added a chopped red pepper. I sampled this for lunch and know now that dinner will be greatly enjoyed.

      I loved the cinnamon onions and I liked the chicken and spices on it, but I don't think they went well together.
