    From the New Book of Middle Eastern Food, posted for ZWT III, North Africa and the Middle East. When I made this, I used chutney rather than the orange marmalade and it was very nice.

      I made this recently for PAC and served it with Curried lentils. I couldn't find the Barberries anywhere (still curious about those as I had never heard of them and the name is cool lol). Even with the one ingredient missing this was a hit. We tend to like fruity savoury dishes in our household and this one will definitely be a repeat. It isn't something you want to make if you're wanting highly spiced (I DID end up putting some garlic in it for a bit of balance) and it also needs salt when finished to bring out the flavors some. But this is a mild fruity rice dish that I think would be just as good w/out the chicken and served as a side dish. Will make again. Thanks Pattikay!
