Italian Chicken Pilaf

One of the original FBC recipes from when TrailCooking was known as, this is a couscous recipe that is Freezer Bag Cooking friendly.
Couscous is “instant” pasta, requiring no cooking of it. Just add hot water and wait a bit, and you have a hearty meal.
When this recipe was written Lipton Soup was still selling tomato soup packets in the US. They discontinued it, but it is still sold in the UK and other regions, and can be sourced on Amazon. I have included a link in the recipe for it.
