Very easy to make. The chicken is really the great part about this recipe. I didn't love the cilantro, lime and corn in the couscous. I might try basil and squash next time around.

Really flavorful and tasty for quick summer dinner. We made it with quinoa, but you could do any grain, really. Was a little on the salty side - we'll cut the salt next time. We used 4 chicken thighs and 2 breasts cut in thirds. Cooked up all at the same time so that was perfect. Also used fresh corn.

Really loved the chicken! Simple and flavorful, all in one. Cooked up beautifully. I didn't put the corn in the couscous, because I don't like corn in my food. It was absolutely delicious still. My entire family, from 4 to 44, loved it.

Followed the recipe, except used fresh basil instead of cilantro. We thought there was a bit much spice coating the chicken, so when I do this again, I will use less. The couscous was great. I sauteed some zucchini and yellow squash in the pan after the chicken and before the couscous. Very nice side with this recipe.
