“An absolutely wonderful chicken dish, this dish has so much flavor, and is wonderful served with rice or couscous. Of coarse any part of the chicken may be used for this recipe. If you are using a 3-4 pound cut-up chicken, I suggest doubling all ingredients. I have even added in a coarsley chopped green bell pepper to this. You will love this chicken! Make certain to brown the chicken first, it improves the flavor in ths dish.”
