Delicious! I cut up boneless skinless chicken thighs instead of using chicken legs, and did not use the rose water or lime, but otherwise made as stated. The sweetness was just right and I loved the complexity of the flavors. We will definitely enjoy this again! Thanks for posting.

When I saw this recipe I knew I had to make! My garden grown saffron was just picked 2-3 weeks back. I love cardamom so you see where I needed to make this. I used 8 drumsticks. Skipped the sugar for the dates and cranberries were sweet enough. I used brown basmati rice so I did have to simmer about 40 minutes. My almond were whole so I rough chopped them. Would have to seen some fresh green herbs to brighten the dish. I did use the rose water and lime. 5 stars for the tenderness and yummieness. But a presentation on how to give as a gift makes it 4 stars. I did look at the typical recipes on line after I made this recipe. Most state to soak rice for 2 hours. This is made for weddings. Almonds are also soaked for an hour. But no matter! I did love this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
