      Was OK. Almost 4 1/2 stars but like others said the recipe is written very poorly, including the ingredients being listed in no particular order which made reading the recipe take a lot longer. I did not find it worth it for the amount of cooking time to use fresh tomatoes though I did. I prefer the raisins not cooked in the broth so I put less in the liquid which verified this to me. I used my own homemade chicken stock rather than the low-sodium chicken bullion cubes. I added 2 chopped cloves of fresh garlic to the onions near the end of cooking time. I also cooked another small onion with a couple dashes of salt and near the end of cooking time added a small handful of pine nuts to them and a tsp white sugar and served this on top of the chicken and rice. I don't think I will make this again.

      This is a great recipe, though the directions should be more clear.
