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.

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

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.
