      This was a great recipe. The olives added a nice touch, and the chick peas were a good idea, but what really made this dish was the honey. I only used a little but, but the flavour of it complimented the subtle sourness of the lemon so well. I did make a few small changes, using what I had on hand. I used cubed skinless chicken breast, added some chopped mushrooms, and served it with cous cous, rather than rice. I personally think I went a little overboard with the salt on the chicken, but my family didn't seem to mind.
