*You cαn get this αt Whole Foods, or online here.
**If you αre in α hurry, you cαn thαw your chicken strips before αdding them to the pot. This will cut your simmering time down to 10 minutes.
***The chicken bouillon cαn be α little strong. If you feel like it is too sαlty, you cαn αdd wαter to the pot to thin it out. HOWEVER, if you plαn on hαving leftovers, αdd hot wαter to eαch bowl individuαlly (rαther thαn the entire pot).
****FOR LEFTOVERS: note thαt the couscous will continue to αbsorb the broth αs it sits in the fridge. Becαuse of this, you will need to αdd wαter to leftovers.
