      Served this at a luncheon with friends and it was SO delicious. In fact, I think the pilaf might have been a bigger hit than the chicken and will certainly be a side dish we make often now. Somehow I failed to pick up long grain rice, so I used a calrose rice, which I worried would be too sticky, but the sweet sticky rice actually worked pretty well too...so well, everyone asked for the recipe. ;-)
