    MaryMc's Note:

    I found this recipe in a story from a California newspaper about a "Pacific Northwest cuisine" restaurant opening in Manhattan. I don't know what it has to to with any of the above places--it seems Middle Eastern or North African to me--but it sure is good!

    1. 1
      To make the marinade, combine the olive oil, capers, garlic, lemon juice, rosemary, paprika, harissa, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
    2. 2
      Pound the chicken breasts to an even 1/2-inch thickness.
    3. 3
      Place the chicken in a large Ziplock bag and add the marinade. Make sure the chicken is coated on all sides, then refrigerate for at least 3 hours and up to 6 hours.
    4. 4
      Prepare your grill by scraping it, oiling it and heating it to high.
    5. 5
      Remove the chicken from the marinade, reserving the liquid. Place the chicken breasts a few inches apart on the grill. If you are using a charcoal grill, place the chicken directly over the hot coals.
    6. 6
      Grill the chicken for 4 to 6 minutes on each side, or until cooked through (the chicken should read 165°F on a meat thermometer inserted in the center). Remove the chicken from the heat, cover with foil and set aside.
    7. 7
      To make the sauce, in a medium saucepan combine the remaining marinade with 1 cup water. Bring to a boil and cook for 1-2 minutes.
    8. 8
      Whisk the flour into 1/3 cup cool water, then add to the marinade, stirring constantly. Bring to boil to thicken the sauce slightly. Remove from the heat and cool slightly.
    9. 9
      Pour the sauce over the chicken and serve.

      Great recipe! I prepared the marinade and soaked the chicken for two days. The chicken melted like butter. The family demolished the chicken and are begging for more!
