    I got this recipe out of a Dish Magazine. It is beautiful! Prep time included time to marinate. I sometimes marinate over night.

      No stars as I didn't make the complete recipe (skipped the rice). The chicken was quite easily made and very flavorful, but I don't believe we'll be adding it to our permanent repertoire.
