Discard bones, reserve garlic and place roasting pan over medium heat. Add stock and stir to dislodge any pan scrapings. Cook for 2-3 minutes, then strain juices into a bowl.
To cook the couscous, Bring 3 cups of chicken stock to a rapid boil, poor in the couscous pearls and saffron, turn down to a simmer for 10 min or until the pearls are tender.
