  • It was too spicy for my taste. Next time I'll omit the cayenne pepper. I'll also omit half the chicken broth because there was too much juice, even when served over couscous. - 7/27/14

  • Something about the flavors did not mix together well - it came out too sweet. Perhaps it would be better to leave the apricots and raisins out. The rub was delicious by itself, but in conjunction with the other flavors, just something tasted off about it. - 10/9/10

  • The recipe was a little too hot for our taste and we felt that there needed to be more cumin and cinnamon. I loved how easy it was to make and it tasted very good inspite of the spiciness. - 8/10/10

  • Delicious! My husband and I loved this. I also added a can of garbanzo beans. It was a little soupy, but over couscous it would be perfect. The spices were good, but not too hot. - 12/29/09
