I agree with all the comments mentioned below. I used thin cut chicken and paired it with Near East Wild mushroom couscous. Couldn't find Israeli couscous. I also thought it was Fantastic!

It was fantastic.. the perfect pairing of savory and sweet. It satisfied all the senses. The smell was out of this world. The taste was devine and the meat was moist with the dried fruit, a little chewy. It looked heavenly on the serving dish, like I'd spent all day preparing it. Even all of the "yum"'s and "mmm"'s satisfied my hearing. My family, from youngest to oldest, male and female can't wait 'til I make it again. Hey anything made with a little wine has got to be good right! An instant favorite at my house!
