I served this with a fairly sweet chicken recipe, and both the fella and I thought it was perfect. The sweetness of the dried fruit was just enough to carry the sweetness over from the entree, but the savory couscous kept it from being too cloying. I followed the recipe pretty much as written; I didn't have dried cherries, so I substituted chopped dried apricots and dried cranberries. Also, I was out of chicken broth, so instead I used two herbed chicken bouillon cubes in two cups of boilng water. I didn't find it "bland" at all (although it's possible that the spices in the bouillon cubes helped on that front). While it wouldn't make a meal on its own, it was a great complement to a flavorful main course.
