    Dasha's Note:

    Its red, its good, and you will want more! This recipe is a time saver. It uses chicken, but if you like you can use beef or lamb. I suggest making it double. Its that good.

      We just love this recipe. I don't mess with it much, except that I mix the spices in bulk & just measure out of the container each time (that's how popular this recipe is). It's a great primer for "hiding" veggies! Most people have no clue how many veggies are in it & kids love it! Even my picky chicken nugget & fry guy!

      I had no idea what to expect when I chose this dish. I made only two minor changes: I added some cumin as another reviewer mentioned, and I used a bit of yogurt instead of the milk. It was pretty soupy, but I do feel this recipe deserves five stars. It didn't take the 1 1/2 hours as listed. More like a total of an hour, though I did use pre-cooked chicken breast. Thanks Dasha.

      This is a wonderful recipe. My husband is Moroccan and loved it! I did double the recipe and I'm glad I did. The only thing I added to the spices was Cumin. I also substituted the water and used chicken broth instead. This recipe will stay in my " to keep" folder and will make it often. Thanks!
