TO PREPARE CHICKEN Microwave chicken uncovered, on HIGH (100 percent power) for 3 minutes. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large, non-stick skillet or Dutch oven. Turn heat to medium and add onion and carrots, stirring occasionally.

Remove chicken from microwave and slice into 1/2-inch strips. Cut longest strips in half. Add chicken and garlic to skillet, cover, increase heat to high and cook 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, cinnamon, cumin, turmeric, black pepper to taste, honey, zucchini (or yellow squash) and bell pepper; stir well. Cook covered at a rolling boil for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.

TO PREPARE COUSCOUS: Bring chicken broth and water to a boil in medium sauce pan. Stir in couscous, cover pan and remove from heat for 5 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork.

TO SERVE: Stir raisins and chick peas into chicken mixture. Cook 1 minute longer. Serve at once over a bed of couscous. Leftovers store well in refrigerator for several days.
