      I really enjoyed this. It was comfort food. I used boneless, skinless thighs. They were finished in only 10 minutes compared to 30 for the bone-in ones. I would have given this five stars, but DH wouldn't finish it. He wanted gravy over it. Uh, no. I served it over rice because I wanted to round out the meal and soak up every bit of the broth. This actually seemed pretty close to Iranian cuisine to me compared to North African, but whatever. It was a very good dinner. ZWT9
