    Mirj's Note:

    This is another one of those amazing recipes that I get from my upstairs neighbor. I have to actually watch her cook so I can get approximate measurements. In my next life, I want to be Moroccan!

      I personally loved this, but Tomoko (Japanese student living with us) couldn't come at the fruit and sweet sauce. Russell felt it was over sweet but OK. This was very easy to make, but I couldn't put one cup of margarine in it! Don't tell your neighbour Mirj, but I reduced that to 2 tablespoons! Also salt is mentioned in the directions, but not in the ingredients. I find you need quite a bit to balance out the sweetness, so added a generous teaspoon.

      Loved this! I added just a bit of cayenne pepper for balance, and browned the chicken first and then removed the skin.
