    I've made this quite a few times now and it's always a great success. I use Whole Wheat Couscous however, and minced garlic rather than Garlic Salt. =) - 3/22/07

    This was great! I love couscous but hate the sodium level of the flavored boxes so I was drawn to this recipe with the regular kind. Was not disappointed! Great flavor. I added garlic to the sautee instead of the salt & used dried basil but hope to dry with fresh next time. Will def. make again! - 6/23/09

    Looooved it. I substituted 1 tbsp dried basil. Also, I put thawed chicken tenderloins in right after sauteeing the veggies and cooked the chicken for a few minutes like that. It turned out just as good. I had to add a bit more chicken broth (I used low sodium). - 1/14/08

    It is a very good and quick recipe. I also cooked the chicken just after the veggies. I also beefed up the veggie portion. I used zuchini too. - 3/4/08

  • The recipe was quite tasty and fairly easy to make. We used turkey stock, as that's what we had on-hand. We also added some extra veges. - 12/5/09
