This is a recipe from another site. I really liked it as it is full of flavor and low in fat. The original recipe calls for 2 cloves of garlic but I am a true garlic lover so I doubled it. This was served with Classic Saffron Rice.

This was such a quick recipe to put together and we were both really happy with the results. I used two chicken breasts, but as we are piggies, I made all the sauce to go over our couscous. I doubled the coriander and cumin, but left the cinnamon as written. I think the nutritional data is out and estimated this would be around 5 grams fat (total) per serve. Our chicken was really moist and tender cooked this way and I'll be making this again thank you.

Thoroughly enjoyed by myself, DH & DD. When making again, I would increase the amounts of spices slightly, just as a personal preference. Made for Aussie Kiwi Swap Sept 2010.
