    MarieRynr's Note:

    The selection of spices used in this dish create an exotic aroma. I love the combination of olives, capers and tomatoes. It's one of my favorites. You could serve it with steamed couscous, but we prefer it with rice. Plan ahead as it needs to marinate.

      My family was not really impressed with this recipe. I served it over rice. It looked pretty and the meat was tender but not overly impressed with the flavor combination. Everyone ate it but nobody was interested in the leftovers.

      This was a very good recipe and even better the next day! I substituted boneless chicken breasts for the thighs and served it up on a bed of white rice. I also added two fresh roma tomatoes (diced) and some kalamata olives to the mix. Very tasty! Thanks, MarieAlice!
