Recipe by English_Rose

Fast-roasting the chicken and cherry tomatoes in a hot oven gives this one-pot couscous dinner a fantastic juicy flavour. For a vegetarian version, use diced butternut squash or sweet potato in place of the chicken, and replace the chicken broth with vegetable broth. For a different flavour, add harissa paste instead of the crushed chili.
