    Just Call Me Martha's Note:

    This recipe originally won first prize ($1 Million) in a national cook-off of some sort (I think Pillsbury) several years ago. I can see why - it is a wonderful combination of flavours. The recipe is quite easy to make and is very economical. I have also substituted the chicken thighs for boneless, skinless breasts and it works just fine. The thighs are definitely better though as they are more moist. Do try this - you'll love it.

      This recipe is outstanding! There were 10 of us at lunch yesterday, I made enough of this for 15, and there's hardly any leftovers! I used chicken breasts instead of thighs, craisins instead of the currants, and added a large chopped onion while I was browning the chicken. I also substituted some Moroccan harissa for the salsa, it made it a little more authentic in our eyes. If you do use harissa, don't substitute it one for one with the amount of salsa called for in the recipe, harissa is a gazillion times spicier, use caution. Our guests' youngest son was especially fond of this meal. I asked him how many stars I should give this recipe, and he answered, "63!" I wish I could give you 63 stars, Martha, but I'll have to settle for 5. This Million Dollar Chicken is worth every penny!

      This was great. I also used chicken thighs which I believe give a richer taste. Substituting a couple of tablesponns of harissa paste for the salsa is a must - just add some more water to make up for the lack of liquid from the salsa. I will make this one again! I agree with the previous reviewer that it works well to add an onion at the start. I also added a can of chick peas at step 7 which adds a little variety and authenticity. (Stole that idea from another Morroccan chicken recipe!)

      Delicious! This is a new family favorite. Very easy to make. I used raisins instead of currants and butter instead of oil. I only used 4 thighs, I don't think this recipe would make enough sauce for 8 thighs. Also, I think it would be great to double the sauce recipe and mix it with already cooked bite-sized pieces of chicken or lamb for a stew, and serve that over rice or couscous. Will definitely make again!
