I found this in a RealSimple magazine and knew my boys would like it. Great with grilled chicken!

Very enjoyable. Made almost as written the only change was to cut the oil in half. And like another review was temped to use broth and was glad that I didn't as the flavors are so well balanced as is. Makes 6 large servings. DH loved every thing from the roasted almonds to the apricot jam. Thanks so much for the post.
