    Kitzy's Note:

    This is slightly unusual, but don't be put off by the chocolate! Try serving it on polenta.

      I kept true to the recipe as much as possible with the ingredients on hand. the only changes I had to make was to omit the sultans and use sliced almonds in lieu of the pine nuts. This is a very unique recipe that is easy to prepare. That said, I think we'll keep chocolate to desserts. We have had sweet chicken before, even with vanilla that is quite delicious, but we won't be mixing chocolate with poultry again. Sorry Kitzy, this one just didn't work out for us.
