“Delicious recipe originally from the Sunset Crockery Cookbook. I made a few changes when I tried the dish. I used about 3 pounds of skinless chicken thighs instead of an entire chicken. Not having nutmeg, and liking extra heat, I sprinkled the chicken with ground red pepper instead. Also I didn't have pimentos or almonds.”
