    Perfectionist cook's Note:

    Bites of seasoned chicken breast mixed in a pilaf with currants, almonds and sauteed vermicelli. I got this recipe from a student (thanks Petroula!)and it has pleased even the fussiest and most unadventurous eaters,namely my MIL and BIL, so I would recommend it whole-heartedly. It's also very simple to make, you only dirty one pot and it makes a large amount.

      Really, really good. Spicy, but not hot, just flavorful, simple, easy to make, and the fact that it's a one pot dish, add to the appeal of this dish. I really loved the almonds mixed in. I will def make this again! Thanks
