    Not sure what I did wring but it seems like WAY too much stock. I was cooking it for about 15 minutes altogether and by then the couscous had gone revoltingly mushy. My kids were appalled at the "gloop" that I served them. I will cook it again but stick with my usual method of pouring on the stock, covering and leaving to stand for 10mins. What a shame, I don't often 'treat' us to chicken breasts, so it felt like a real waste.

    This is dead easy to make and a winner with grown ups and kids - I make a big batch and freeze portions for my toddler.
