This doesn't really need another 5-star review but it absolutely is a fantastic recipe because it yields such tasty results for such little effort! I do recommend doubling or tripling the sauce ingredient and adding some spice. I have a little pot of harissa spice mix and I put in several teaspoons of this - the salsa I used was mild. It needs the heat -- without it, it's tasty but a little too tame.
The title says it all! Wow, this is wonderful and my husband agrees! It was also incredibly easy!! I used bone-in thighs and just removed the skin.
Delicious flavors! I definitely recommend making more sauce since the chicken is bland w/o it. Also, next time I would try seasoning the chicken w/ salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder before browning. I made few changes. I had sliced almonds and since they were thin, I decided to brown them in a separate pan w/ very little olive oil. I figured it would be hard to scoop them out w a slotted spoon. And since I had a whole chicken, I cut it up into parts and left the skin on and bones in. I also added a chopped onion to the garlic and chicken when browning in a large All-Clad pot. However, since the garlic and onions started to burn before the chicken browned, I took the garlic and onions out and browned the chicken parts by themselves. I had to throw away the burnt garlic and onions. After browning the chicken (which I split into two batches in order to brown them w/o crowding the pot), I took the chicken out and then browned a new batch of garlic and onions. Once browned, I added the chicken back to the pot. I didn't measure but just eyeballed everything and substituted dry cranberries for the currants b/c that's what I had on hand.
This is very good. I made this using skinless chicken thights (bone-in) and adjusted the baking time and they turned out wonderful. We really liked the sweet flavor with these, something different then we are used to. I served this with some flavored couscous and we were in heaven. Great summer meal, thank you for sharing.
It took me a moment to get used to the sweet flavor. But my husband LOVED this dish, and devoured the majority of the dish himself. In one sitting. Anyways, I subbed dates in, and it was still very good.
This definitely tastes like a million dollars. Thanks for posting, Just Call Me Martha!
Very flavorful recepie. The almonds really add a nice touch. Thanks for posting.
It's an easy recipe, but I'm not sure we would make it again.
I must admit - after seeing that it won $1 million prize - I was expecting to taste nirvana. And it wasn't even close. It's a nice and easy dish but I was not overwhelmed. I'll see if the flavors improve overnight and try it again for lunch.
