Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Instead of thyme, try using chopped fresh oregano or marjoram leaves in this chicken and couscous recipe.
  • tip 2
    Goat cheese is a nice substitute for feta in this roasted peppers couscous dish.
  • tip 3
    Prefer to roast your own red bell peppers? You’ll need about 1 cup of chopped peppers for this roasted peppers couscous recipe.
  • tip 4
    Cover and refrigerate leftovers; use within 3 days. This couscous dish makes a great cold lunch as well. If serving the couscous cold, consider spooning over mixed greens and drizzling with a little fresh lemon juice.
