Mmm, good! Chicken was cooked in a saute pan, set aside. Sauce made in separate pan, chicken put back in saute pan and sauce added. Served over the rice recipe you suggested and we ate off this meal for 2-3 days and never got tired of it. I think I would however double the amount of rose water. Parsley was garnished on top of the chicken and not stirred into the mixture. Will make again very soon! Raves all around. Thank you!
