    It was awesome. Easy, quick, real no-brainer. And my sons loved it. Will have to try some variations since this was too easy to be a one-off. :)

    So good and super easy. Make sure to consider cooking time on the chicken or to get a rotisserie one.

    Very easy recipe to follow. It wasn’t my favorite, but, it was a quick meal to make for dinner. I also added onions.

    Tried this recipe last night..it turned out great! Such an easy dish to make..I bought pre chopped celery & onions. Chopped up some baby carrots. Will definitely be making this again.

    Added tomato paste and spices, a little dry but still good.

    Made this for dinner last night, it was a huge hit! Would definitely cook veggies down a little longer than suggested to soften them up more. I used Bob's Red Mill tri-color couscous (gave it a sweeter taste than I expected), sautéed chicken separately in lemon-infused olive oil before adding to skillet, added a little white cooking wine in addition to chicken stock and added parsley at the end as well. Could definitely use a little more seasoning (turmeric, celery salt, oregano) or an acid (lemon juice or diced tomatoes) in my opinion, but overall an easy and filling dish.
