      A friend of mine was not only kind enough to educate me regarding preserved lemons, then gave me a bit of it (which I diced) to use in this recipe! Made only half a recipe using 4 medium chicken breasts! Other than that I followed the ingredients & directions as given & served it over brown rice for a GREATLY SATISFYING DINNER! Thanks for the keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed as a kidnapped recipe in the Aus/NZ Special Recipe Swap #19]
