Very good quick recipe!It ended up being even quicker,since I used 4 leftover grilled chicken breasts.I also added a couple heads of lightly steamed broccoli and made a dressing of 1 1/2 Tbs lime juice,about 6 Tbs orange juice,2 cloves garlic,salt and pepper and tossed it in.I also cooked the couscous in 1 1/2 c. broth instead of 2.
This is a good base recipe, but as written it is pretty bland. I added a few dashes of sesame oil and low sodium soy sauce to mine and my husband added some parmesan to his. We liked it with our additions.
Add 1 more pound of chicken for a more filling meal.
I served this cold. It was excellent. Would go well as a side dish or a meal with bread. My son hates cooked peppers and enjoyed the raw peppers. Very colorful!!Suggest you take liquids you will cook the chicken in and mariante chicken in it for at least 30-60 minutes before cooking/
WOW! GREAT lunch salad! I make a batch of this, and it drives my co-workers crazy wondering where I got it! I was also amazed how quickly it can be thrown together. All in all, great recipe.
A delicious alternative to pasta salad!
I made it with precooked couscous and it was a success.
Great summer salad.Refridgerated over nite and had it for lunch. I added cherry tomatoes it was a great outcome.
The whole family loved this recipe. I used mostly what we had at home....I took the suggestion of adding asparagus, feta and low fat Greek dressing. I didn't have onions or wine and it tasted yummy! Would be a great salad to make ahead for a hot summer day.
