Spread Lime Sauce over chicken drumsticks and thighs and set aside about 15 minutes.

With slotted spoon, remove chicken and vegetables to warm serving bowl. Skim off any fat in pan, boil juices about 5 minutes and pour into gravy boat with spout.

To serve, mound Raisin Couscous, top with chicken and vegetables and pour juice over all.
