      I left out the marjoram & lemon zest and added some ras el hanout & preserved lemon in its place. My husband thoroughly enjoyed this dish for dinner last night.

      Excellent recipe! Instead of using marjoram I used herbs of provence and instead of kalamata olives, I used a mixture. My husband and I really enjoyed it... definitely a keeper!

      This one delivered more than I expected, a truly delicious and armomatic flavor (if that is possible?) caused I think by the cilantro and lemon peel-a wonderful combo. Too bad you don't like olives jovigirl, because they are wonderful in this stew. I poached three chicken breast fillets for use in this recipe, which only yielded three cups of cooked chicken but I think that was plenty! I then used 3 cups of the poaching liquid for the chicken stock called for. Served this over couscous and for the first time, my husband actually enjoyed the couscous. Thanks for posting!
