    Habibi's Note:

    A nice chicken and walnut dish from Arabia. (I increased the spices and that made it more appealing to me, at least)

      A great, subtly spiced stew - the garnishings really take this to the next level, so do not leave them out! I used 1 kg of bone-in chicken breasts, but otherwise followed the recipe; used in all about 1,5 ts salt and cut the chicken in fairly large chunks (aesthetic preference!). Thank you for a lovely recipe Habibi!

      I cooked this in my pressure cooker to cut down on the cooking time. My family thought this recipe had a good flavor but it was average. I probably won't make it again.
