Store-bought rotisserie chicken saves time in the kitchen, while a tangy-sweet dressing tossed with crispy vegetables and couscous cranks out the sophisticated flavor in this simple chicken dish.



How to Make It

Step 1

To prepare salad, bring water, 1 teaspoon oil, and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan; gradually stir in couscous. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Place in a large bowl; cool to room temperature.

Step 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add remaining oil to pan. Add the bell pepper, zucchini, and mushrooms; sauté 4 minutes or until bell pepper is tender. Add bell pepper mixture, chicken, carrot, onions, currants, mint, and black pepper to couscous; toss gently to combine.

Step 3

To prepare dressing, combine yogurt and remaining ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle over couscous mixture, tossing gently to combine.

I liked this, my husband no so much.  He felt the dressing was overwhelming like other reviews and was still lacking something more. I would agree, but I didn't think it was that much off balance.  So I ended up eating the rest as leftovers, it stores well and is good for those but we probably won't make this dish again, only because I don't need that many leftovers to eat the whole dish by myself.

Good recipe, but the dressing is a bit overwhelming. We used a little bit and it was still too much. I would definitely make it again but use something else to season it. I love couscous and the vegetables so I would try it again with some variation.

I love this dish. I've made it a couple of times now. I like that it's simple to prepare and a dependable dish to have waiting in the fridge when I get home from work. I like that it's healthy, and delicious. It's a keeper in my book.

I needed a vegetarian dish so I omitted the chicken and used yellow raisins for the currents. In the dressing I only used greek style yogurt and a minced clove of garlic with lemon juice. Thought it was very good with these changes. Will definitely make again.

My husband and I were so excited to try this recipe and we were sorely disappointed with the results. The dressing was completely overwhelming and distracting. If you just made the first portion, and kept it warm and added a little curry or cumin, it would be an excellent dish. I'm only sorry I ruined all of those delicious ingredients by adding the dressing.
