      Great chicken dish! Loved all the rich spices and the hearty chickpeas. Next time I may add some cayenne to add some heat which we love with this type of dish. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      This is really scrumptious. The flavors are wonderful and it's so easy.I love North African and Middle East dish's with the rich spicing and warm comfort that they offer.

      Nancy, you've probably realised by now I can't help changing the odd thing in a recipe! Tonight I left out the couscous and broth as I wanted to serve a seperate cous cous dish. I also used dried cranberries instead of raisins which I don't like. I also granished with fresh coriander rather than parsley (because I reckon it's more middle-eastern than parsley). Gorgeous dish which got a huge thumbs-up from both Russ and me.
