    I made this up, browned chicken thighs separately, put the chicken in a greased baking dish with the couscous all around the chicken, covered with foil and baked it. The couscous absorbed the chicken juices and stayed moist. We loved this! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    A new experience for us. Our first couscous recipe. We all really enjoyed it. The flavor reminded us of cornbread dressing. Made for ZWT9 for Hot Stuff.

    I used Israeli couscous, which required a little more broth, and a short boiling time, but other than that I made it as stated. I was a little hesitant to put sultanas (raisins) in- my husband and I liked them, but my son picked them out. For ZWT9

    Oh I had a oops moment in that I caramilized the onions but didn't realize I was supposed to add the sugar, vinegar and thyme mix to the onions until I added my caramilized onion to the cooked couscous - o'kay a quick zap in the microwave to melt the sugar and stirred through the couscous as a dressing and we had a delicious side to our recipe #197696 and some steamed silverbeat fresh from the garden. thank you katew for a great recipe.
