      So delicious! I would change nothing, but I did use dried chick peas, 1/2 cup, and soaked them overnight, adding them at the same time with the chicken and they were cooked by the time chicken was cooked. Also, at the end of cooking time I added some couscous in the pot to absorb the lovely juices, resulting a tagine like dish. Very very good and simple as well and the whole meal in one pot.

      Fantastic!!! I removed the skin from the chicken, but otherwise followed the recipe. I normally don't like fruit with meat - loved this - and now am trying alot more recipes with fruit in them. Thanks!
