      I also used Omani Spice Mix for the spice mix. The end result was still too Spiced for DH to even try but that is just him. Personally I enjoyed the recipe and in particular the saffron mix which I thought did something very nice for the recipe, Made for NA/ME's visit to United Arab Emirates.

      Made as written although I cut the rice down by half and omitted the bouillon (using some broth instead of water for cooking the chicken). The end product needed more of the spices to add color. The chicken was served with freshly minced cilantro and parsley. I think I would have preferred this dish more if the chicken were pan fried. Omani Spice Mix was used to make the spice mixture. Reviewed for NA*ME Explores Oman.
