    This is a recipe I modified slightly from a book called '1000 classic recipes. I made it for the first time last night and it is gorgeous.

      I made this for DD (toddler) and I with rice because we are wheat free and no sauce as I was in a rush. I threw everything in the pot together and it was sill rated 5. I did not even garnish with the fresh mint. I used all a canola olive oil mix as we are dairy free and replaced the nutmeg with allspice because of its intoxicant nature. I would like to try this again properly.

      Excellent. We both liked it a lot. When we crushed the mint onto our chicken, it soared from a 4 to a 5. Thank you so much for posting it. Made for Spring 2007 PAC.
