    We loved this recipe...it had the right blend of spices. I made up the marinade and used it with chicken thighs. I froze the package flat, so it took little effort to thaw it out! I would definately do this one again!

    Add me to the fans!!! I also used only one chicken so just cut the ingredients in half and combined all ingredients in my food processor (less chopping). I also substituted black peppercorns because I couldn't find white. LOVE THIS DISH!!!!!!

    Wow lovely flavours with out it been to intense. I used 1 chicken only so decreased the spice to 1/4 the quantity Used cracked black pepper instead and then dry fryed it with the other spices so have more controle of the amount you putting in. Subtituted olive oil for canola, added 1/2 the amount added green olives and doted with a small amount off butter...Was yummy Thank you for a gr8 recipe will be making it often.
