Make-Believe Middle Eastern Chicken

itsgretchen 0

"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."

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.


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 ...
