Golden Raisin and Pistachio Couscous


If you haven't tried couscous before, this is a great option for side dishes! It soaks up so much flavor from the chicken stock and other stuff...you just can't go wrong with this as a side dish. (It's not vegetarian as is, but if you swap out the chicken stock for veggie stock...BAM!)

I made my "fancy" and added golden raisins and pistachios to go with my Grilled Moroccan Chicken we cooked up for dinner as well...these both go together like PB&J. Enjoy!
