    This was quick and easy and delicious. I added a little chopped apple for sweetness, moisture and crunch. . I think hicama would also be good. - 4/16/08

    I'm making this for supper tonight- will add some curry paste and a few chopped roasted peanuts and green onion to spark it up. - 4/16/08

  • I did think the original sounded bland, so I combined a few suggestions people had put on here. I added chicken broth to the couscous, garlic and cumin to the veggies (used broccoli and added mushrooms), and sauteed the chicken in teriyaki before adding! Not bad! Seems healthy and filling! - 4/13/13

  • Very good. Added 1/4 t. cumin for some kick. Also added 1 can of pinto beans for extra protein. Will make again. - 3/4/13

  • The veggies added more to the plate. The chicken was already cooked in a combo of teriyaki & bbq sauce, so it had its own flavor. I didn't have to add anything. I sauteed the carrots first, then added the green peppers, and lastly added the onion. Used a red onion which gave it even more flavor. - 1/23/12

  • I made the recipe exactly as given. I thought this was really bland. I wasn't sure how I was supposed to prepare the vegetables so I diced them. The onions were done before the carrots & peppers were soft. I wish it said how many cups are in a serving. Husband liked it. - 11/7/11

  • Is this recipe supposed to be 1 cup PREPARED couscous? If I try and confirm the nutritional value I get 150 calories for 1/4 cup UN prepared couscous so I'm not sure how the creator of the recipe gets 30 calories for 1/4 cup. - 1/24/11
