I tried this recipe yesterday. I'm sorry but the cinnamon and powdered sugar didn't do it for me. I prefer cumin and lemons in the Morroccan recipes and the powdered sugar was too sweet.

Very nice combination of spices with both the rice and the chicken. Enjoyed by all but wanting a little something more. Next time I will add 1/4 tsp cloves to the chicken, cut the mushrooms to 1/2 lb in the rice and add a 1/2 cup bean sprouts and just one more chili pepper.. Thankyou for an excellent recipe
