    Good and simple. Smelled great while it was cooking. Thanks for sharing, Paula. Made for ZWT9.

    This was pretty good. I marinated the chicken overnight. I didn't have any saffron but I threw in a saffron rice mix that I had. I don't care fo cinnamom and used allspice instead. And I used walla walla's instead of the general yellow onions as well as peaches instead of apricots since that's what I had. A nice combination of flavors and it was great to sit down to a hot meal as cold as it's gotten.

    This was good. I think it would have been even better if I had marinated the chicken first.
