      This recipe didn't quite meet my expectations. I think the main problem is that the chicken was more like a casserole. I should have done what Elmotoo did and cooked the chicken on the stove top. I also thought the balance of flavor was off and too tangy. Cinnamon would have been a good addition. Not horrible but not my favorite chicken recipe. Very sorry! Reviewed for A Taste of Syria.

      I adapted this for using boneless breasts on the stovetop. Made the sauce, let it simmer while I browned the chicken. Added breasts & apricots to sauce & simmered about 15 minutes. I didn't have a can of tomato paste so I used a massive squirt from the tube & increased the tamarind. I served it over coarse bulgur. NO LEFTOVERS & rave reviews! Made for A Taste of Syria in the NA/ME Forum 9/2013.
