Had this at a friends house and requested the recipe. I use quinoa instead of couscous and everyone loves this when I make it. It does make a large amount so I prepare this quite a bit when I have people over for dinner and then eat leftovers for lunch. Garnish with cilantro and serve with steamed broccoli....yum.
This is one of my all time favorite recipes. I've been making this for years ever since I got this issue and it continues to be a crowd pleaser.
The flavors are outstanding
Excellet ! this has become one of our favorate chicken stew recipes. I don't use the cinnamon - and use chipotle chili for some smoky heat. we fight for leftovers.
In one months time, I made this for everyone who happened to drop over! It is so delicious!
Turned out great. I used chicken tenders and substituted zucchini as we don't care for the olives. Great flavors and an easy recipe to put together.
This is a great simple recipe that grabbed us immediately and got added to our top list. The volume is a little much but I cut it down with a third the chicken and half the remainder and it even appealed to my wife who hates curry. You can leave out the chickpeas with no great problem but the accompaniments should be quite plain to complement the complex flavours. You must leave it stand for several days at least to meld the flavours.
I would never in a million years have put all these spices together. I usually like more Italian and New England dishes but this one caught my eye. I love chicken and lemons together. However I do not like olives or chickpeas so I just left them out. This dish is now the standard by which all of my future meals will be judged.
I made half a recipe, and put in more dried Bay leave than called for- these were really old bay leaves. I am not sure what kind of dried red chilies I used- they were what I could fine in the suprmarket.
Made this as written but reduced it for 4. I was dissapointed. Not sure why, but the chicken had a very rubbery texture and the sauce was very bland. Would not try again.
