It turned out very well with a few changes. For the meat I used several cloves of pressed garlic instead of the powder. I omitted the peppers & added diced roasted tomato to the chicken instead of the couscous. For flavor I definitely added the cumin, then salt, pepper, oregano, chili powder, a splash of white wine, & Italian seasonings (Mc Cormick in a grinder). To the couscous I seasoned the water, (next time I will use homemade chicken broth), with salt & Italian seasonings. After it was done I added CA Olive Ranch olive oil, (otherwise a bit dry & added some great flavor), & some Kerry Gold butter (this stuff is amazing, from grass fed cows), more Italian seasonings, splash of white wine & sliced BLACK OLIVES!! Oh my I think the black olives made the meal! But I love black olives :) I also used kidney beans because I had it on hand. I think next time I will add some chopped green onion as well. I just topped the couscous with the meat mixture instead of mixing it all together. I think it turned out wonderful! My husband loved it too!
