Recipe Comments & Reviews

I made this for dinner tonight. I had the ingredients and it looked and sounded interesting. It actually came out great! My family loved it! My dad said it tasted very Moroccan and my husband posted on Facebook how much he loved it! My 6 year old, who can be a picky eater at times, ate every drop. He helped me cut the veggies, which, incidentally, he said he hates red peppers, and then ended up eating them raw AND cooked! I added a few of my own things--I seasoned the chicken with garlic powder and oregano; I didn't have fresh cilantro so I used the flakes; like another reviewer, I had the butter but not cinnamon sugar butter so I added some cinnamon and a little bit of sugar to the butter as it was melting; and instead of rice or couscous, I made it with spaghetti. It came out really tasty. My only comment, which prevented me from giving it 5 stars, was that I found it a little dry. I would prefer more sauce at the end. Maybe I'll add more butter next time, but there definitely will be a next time!
Easy, tasty, served it with couscous and a salad. Will probably make it again in the future.
This is very good, my family loved it. The only thing I did different, was to make my own cinnamon and sugar butter and I added more chicken...very good recipe.
Simple to make. Very tasty. My wife and I both loved it.
Looked up dinner recipes with chicken wanted to make something good but different, made it for dinner tonight cause I had all the ingredients...It was so good! Very flavorful, husband loved it, definitely a repeat dinner- a keeper!

I made this for supper tonight. My Husband went crazy. THe word fresh kept comming up! It is the first meal I have cooked in a long time where he did not doouse it with salt and pepper. He made me promise to keep the recipe and cook it again. I really loved it too!
THanks Land o lakes, this is a real winner.
This dinner was very flavorful and tasty. My whole family loved it. I served it with pearled couscous and I omitted the raisins. The dish had a nice balance of sweet and spicy. I will definitely make this again.
