I made this recipe recently kayak camping in Maine! This dish is super easy, yummy and satisfying for two people. I substituted a pouch of salmon for the chicken and next time will add a pinch of cayenne for a little kick. Also next time I will add a bit more water to the couscous and add the veggies with them.
