    Made this last night and it was fabulous! If you like lemon tanginess combined with the sweetness of raisins and the salty of olives balanced by potatoes and carrots then this is the dish for you. A beautifully colorful presentation and prepared all in one pot! 4 thumbs up!
    I used a quinoa polenta in place of the couscous, an interesting replacement.

    I tried this and it came out really flavorful and tasty. Nice change!

    Do you think it would work with black olives?

  4. I’ve prepared chicken in dozens of recipes, but I’m always glad to find a new one, since my family could eat it every day, but I can’t bear to prepare the same foods day after day. At age 88+ I still love to learn.

    Steps 6 and 7 are the same. I am a bit frustrated that an organization which aims to be polished continues to make these types of errors.
