    Helping Hands's Note:

    My husband came across this recipe in Men's Health magazine and asked me to make this. We just had this tonight for the first time, and we loved it! We appreciated its simplicity, its uniqueness, and the fact that it is a well-balanced dish - lean protein, veggies, beans, and whole grains - all in one pan (or almost all in one pan)! It has a wonderful flavor - that lovely sweet and spicy blend that is a mainstay of Indian/Moroccan food. I also loved that this was ready in under 30 minutes. Yummylicious!

      This is a great tasting recipe, but it needs a bit of help or more direction I think. The only changes I made were to use boneless skinless breasts, and I added some minced garlic and ginger. The dish came out with a TON of liquid and was more like soup. Should the tomatoes and beans be drained? I think that 1 cup of broth was just too much. If there is that much liquid, it should either be written as a soup or have something to thicken the liquid. It does work well if you serve it in a bowl with couscous. Again though, the taste and flavor of this is awesome.

      Such a good recipe. I found it in Men's Health also, but misplaced it. My girlfriend and I love this. Such a flavorful dish. I like to use a tad more cayenne for a little extra zing. You can also substitute skinless chicken breasts for the thighs. Great meal, thanks for posting!!!!

      My husband found this in Men's Health, but we misplaced the recipe and were lucky enough to find it online. This is the third time we've made this in a month, and not something we traditionally try, but the chicken is very moist and flavorful. I highly recommend this. Thanks for sharing!
