    I loved this dish. It was simple to prepare and I would feel very comfortable serving it to company, as well as to my family for a quick weeknight dinner. A real winner.

    Don't know if I got the wrong brand of couscous mix or what, but found the recipe dry and really not very good. I would not make again.

    Love love LOVE this recipe!! It's always a hit anywhere I bring it. I just adjust a few things: I cut the grape tomatoes in half and use a little bit more feta cheese (it usually comes in a 6 oz package, so I use the whole thing). I also poach the chicken and season the water with garlic and onion powder(to give the chicken a little flavor) and then shred the chicken. I usually serve it cold but it's just as delicious warm!!

    Super easy. Would definitely make again. Plan to make it for a bridal shower I am hosting. Don't leave out the lemon zest. Also, I agree that it is NOT 8 servings. It's probably four servings.

    This was a great quick recipe and everyone loved it! I'll definitely make it again!

    Delicious, easy, and reheats well!! I recommend mixing spices, tomatoes and feta cheese separately, and microwaving for 30 seconds-1 minute for a hot meal!

    We LOVE this recipe! Very flavorful and if you are a Weight Watchers member, or anyone watching her figure, it's healthy! Only 4 points per serving!

    My boyfriend and I thought this was just so-so. Flavors just didn't go together well. I won't make again.

    I thought this recipe was great! Recently having lost 20 lbs and working on losing more I have started trying new recipes. I altered this one a bit by substituting Quinoa for the Cous Cous and adding finely chopped Kalamata olives and a few teaspoons of the brine they come in. I also substituted shrimp for the chicken to save a few calories! This was perfect for dinner and I brought leftovers to work for a couple of days! Will definitely make again.

    Very easy! I used leftover chicken, rather than rotisserie. Great way to use up my leftovers. I used plain couscous and added chopped olives - just because. Is it possible other posters used a low fat version of feta? I used the regular with great results. Will make again.

    Quick and easy dinner. Delicious both hot and cold. Will definitely make this meal again.

    This recipe was so easy and very flavorful! I used Parmesan couscous. I wanted to bring leftovers for lunch, but my husband finished off every last bit!

    Delicious! So nice and light but still filling

    Easy and tasty. I added chopped Kalamata olives and used a rotisserie chicken but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I will definitely make this again especially in the summer when it's just too hot to heat up the kitchen.

    Normally couscous turns out a little on the bland side, but this is very tasty! I added marinated artichoke hearts and a few chopped roasted red bell peppers to give it even more of the Mediterranean flavor and cut the feta down to about 2/3 of a container. This is a keeper!
