This recipe was fast and couldn't have been any easier to make. I didn't have the Kraft dressing so I just subbed balsamic vinegar and added a little white sugar while cooking the onions just to...

This was pretty good. I added a head of garlic to the onion.

Very good and quick. I grilled the chicken instead of cooking in a skillet and used black olives and chopped tomatoes. My family loved it,

I loved this recipe. Easy to make and it tasked wonderful.

Very easy to make. Delicious.

We will not be making this again. The couscous was great, but we really did not like the flavor of the chicken. The cheese seemed odd also.
