  4. Add basil, thyme and summer squash and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add couscous, salt, chicken stock, olives and cooked chicken pieces along with any juices that accumulated, stir and cover roaster with lid.
  6. When Vapo-Valve™ begins to click steadily, turn heat to low and cook for 10 minutes, until couscous if tender but firm to the bite.
  7. Remove lid, taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
  8. Garnish with chopped fresh tomato and herbs or serve them in a small bowl on the side to add to each serving.
  9. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese on top if desired.
