Chicken and Israeli Couscous | Real Housemoms

Do you have any dishes that you used to make and, for no apparent reason you realize that you haven’t made it in years?  I do.  Probably a lot more than I actually remember!  This Chicken and Israeli Couscous is one of those dishes!  I was in the store and saw the couscous and it all came back!

I LOVE this Chicken and Israeli Couscous!  It uses cinnamon even though it’s a savory dish and has a very Middle Eastern flavor.  It doesn’t add a sweetness to the dish so if you’re a little worried about it, just try it and then you’ll fall in love.  Trust me I wouldn’t steer you wrong. ;)
