    L. Duch's Note:

    This is a wonderful dish I found in "Cooking Light" magazine. This dish if full of flavor and despite all the ingredients, it is very easy to make. It's good served with rice and a flat bread. Braising in a this highly aromatic liquid yields an exceptionally flavorful and tender result.

      This took more like 1 hour 45 minutes to make than the 1 hour 10 minutes stated, but worth every minute. It was very easy to make. The aroma throughout the house was incredible and the flavor was even more incredible. We absolutely loved this, LeeAnn!

      This is a very moist and tender chicken. We enjoyed this very much. Made as directed...but for us...I will use a wee more spice next time. This will definately be made again. Thank you for sharing. Made this for African Recipe Fun.
