When you have leftover roast chicken from Sunday dinner, this is an easy and utterly tasty way to make it shine. This bowl is great for using up leftover cooked couscous too (if you don't have any, just prepare it according to the package directions). If you don't have raisins in the pantry, substitute sliced dried apricots, and add a crunchy garnish of toasted sliced almonds.
