This was so good, but to make this recipe I had to make (and will need to review) to others for the spices, what a different taste sensation. Once I had all the spices it went together pretty easy, I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and it was enjoyed by everyone. I'll be using this more often now that I know how good it is. Served with steamed rice and recipe#480898 as well as recipe#426490 - a wonderful dinner. Made for Let's go to Saudi Arabia game
