Here's a little recipe I developed a couple years back for an apple chicken served with couscous:
2 breasts of chicken
1 medium apple (I used MacIntosh, I doubt a sweet apple would work as well)
Black pepper (preferably fresh ground)
Chinese five spice
Organic honey (liquid)
Core apple and cut into small pieces (maybe 1cmx1/2cmx1/2cm -ish?). Cut the chicken breasts into stir-fry sized chinks as well.
Preheat a pan with olive oil and cook the chicken at a med-low heat (somewhere around 4 on the stove dial), adding seasonings to taste (Italian seasoning, a little less onion powder, some black pepper, little bit of lemon pepper). When the chicken is cooked, add the apple, mix the chicken and the apple together, then shake on the Chinese five spice and some cinnamon. cook and mix the apple and chicken until the apple is soft and the spices are evenly coated on both items. Add a little honey to the mixture and mix it up; remove from the heat and let it sit for a moment.
Prepare your couscous as it should be, add some cinnamon and salt to taste.
Serve the apple chicken on a bed of couscous, or mix them together (I tend to mix) and enjoy.
I found the flavour was a little lacking on this one, perhaps because my lemon pepper was really weak, but any suggestions on making the flavour more interesting/robust are certainly welcome!

Sounds good. I might have to give that a try.
