This looks really good. I buy couscous in bulk so I am always up for recipes using it. What do you think about bone in chicken breasts instead of boneless? I am going to give this a go next week! Thanks Christina!

HsKubes said...

Thank you, Ally. ;o) Love you, too!

Jennifer ~ It was very delicious!

Mom ~ I only cooked the chicken in the crockpot to save myself some time. ;o) Love you bunches!

Laura ~ I think bone-in chicken would work just fine. I, personally, would take the meat of the bone, after it is cooked, and make it a more shredded texture. I do this to help make the chicken go further with all of the mouths we have to feed. Would love to know how you like it! ;o) Happy cooking!

God bless you for sharing this delicious looking and affordable recipe. My husband's favorite meat is chicken so I am always trying to find new ways to prepare it....also we LOVE couscous! Thanks again! I will be making this soon!!!

Laura said...

I made it tonight. It turned out wonderful! I did the bone-in b/c I do a better job of not drying out the chicken when I cook that way. It just fell off the bone and shredded nicely. Tasty and easy - a keeper for sure! Thanks again!

Laura ~ Yea! So glad it turned out!
