      Yes, this is fantastic! I only had bone-in chicken thighs available (I like to use up what I have on hand). Fried it up and while the chicken was cooking prepared the rice. Used a homemade baharat mix from a recipe on this site but I don't remember which recipe it was. Prepared the sauce early in the day. Easy to make and a beautiful presentation with a splash of fresh cilantro; parsley from the garden. Served with pan grilled bell peppers of a variety of different colors and bread to scoop up the daqous. One big change: switched grape seed oil for olive oil because the former has a higher flash point for high heat cooking. Best part: ~~Tasty Dish~ approved! Reviewed for Ramadan Tag August. Making again soon! Thank you.

      This was absolutley fantastic! For the Eastern Mixed spice I used a dash each of: cumin, coriander, cinnamon, ginger, black pepper. The tomato sauce was perfection. I did use an Egyption packaged rice mix and left the chicken thick cut instead of pounding out. Thanks for posting a quick and easy dish that still manages to have a great complex layering of flavors.
