I am making my cousin a full days worth of meal mixes for Christmas this year. This is a GIAJ version of my Recipe #224920, which will be for the dinner portion. This makes about 1/3 cup of mix, which serves 8. Since it is just the two of them, I am going to package this in a recycled spice container, but you could also use a larger jar and add some dried apricots, so that all the gift receiver would need to add is chicken, oil, and water. Cook/prep time is for actually cooking the chicken.
