A sumptuous dish with a Middle Eastern flair. The spicy aroma fills you with passionate thoughts. Serve over white rice or couscous. This chicken is also a perfect complement to falafel. The spices can be adjusted; I use much more cumin than I specified in the recipe.

The great thing about this recipe is that it gives you the taste of world cuisine with household ingredients and very easy preparation. My husband and I both enjoyed this meal and we will make it again. The only changes I made were using milk instead of half and half black pepper instead of white (that's what I had on hand) and adding salt to taste since the recipe did not call for any. I served over rice with some sauteed eggplant. Read More

I wish I could make believe I had eaten this. I made this last night and my five year old took one bite and said it was disgusting. He ended up eating a bowl of cereal for dinner. My very easy to please husband took his first bite and said it tastes like chicken and tomatoes. AND I almost doubled the cumin. (When I asked my husband what he would like for dinner tonight he said "anything as long as it is not what you made last night.") I will not make this again. Read More

Make sure your children like spicy dishes because this one I thought was a bit on the spicy side. Read More

Very good with basmati rice. Vegetarian version is use mock chicken recipe using frozen tofu. Can't say how kids like this since all the pups have left the wolf den many moons ago. This was a howling success with my mate. I also used a little more cumin than recipe called for. Read More

I made this recipe for Valentine's and it turned out to be a man-pleaser. Since my honey and I both have reflux and can't eat tomatoes I substituted the stewed tomatoes with frozen mixed vegetables (carrots broccoli and cauliflower). I also didn't have allspice so I used pumpkin pie spice instead and it worked GREAT! This is definitely something I'd make again. Read More

Something didn't work with this--my cream curdled in the tomatoes. The flavors were okay but not a recipe I'd make again I'm afraid. Read More

This was the perfect recipe to use up some dairy we had in the fridge. It came together quickly and the flavors were a nice change for us as our standard flavors are Italian or Mexican. Thanks for sharing. Read More
