      Very good. A nice change from the ordinary. Served with cumin potatoes (on the site) and orange and red onion salad (also on site). The combination was yummy.

      Merlot, this was FANTASTIC, even though I forgot to open the can of chick peas and put them in! I finished this with chopped preserved lemon and parsley (like gremolata) and we ate it with my Cumin Potatoes, and Dancer's Orange Salad with Olives and Mint Orange Salad With Olives & Mint and Oven bake Turkish breaf. What a feast.

      This was my first recipe from Recipe Zaar I have tried so far & it was a hit. I served it with feta, lemon & pinenut couscous and sundried tomato & feta bread. I think I may have salted the chicken a little to much when it was first cooking but other than that I wouldn't have changed a thing. MéLisa
