A Mediterranean-flavoured chicken and vegetable stew served over couscous. It's my all-time favourite and it's delicious!
Very nice. I made it with a few tweaks based on what I had to hand, but overall loved it and would definitely make it again. - 12 May 2010
Used different ingredients. I used chicken thigh, vegetable stock and omitted the jalapenos (partner doesn't like chilli). Still turned out a nice, hearty dish. Would definitely make again. - 12 May 2010
Good recipe. Had to jazz it up a bit - for extra flavor. A lot of people mentioned that the dish was too spicy, and suggested reducing the amount of jalapeno pepper by 1/4 cup. I halved the recipe and used 1/4 cup of jalapeno pepper and it turned out just fine (very mild). If you remove the membrane from the pepper, you also remove some of the heat (the spiciness is contained in the membranes and seeds), so maybe other reviewers who complained about the heat didn't do that (?). I added some chopped (peeled) Granny Smith apple to the dish (it needed a sweet boost), but golden raisins would have worked just as well. I also used a yellow onion in lieu of the green onion called for (much cheaper and a more common ingredient in the dishes that I routinely prepare). Last, I added cinnamon to the skillet (when adding the ginger). Just eyeball it (black pepper too). Used ground ginger (about 1/2 teaspoon in place of fresh ginger) with great results. This dish goes well with warm pita bread spread with hummus. Thanks for sharing! - 11 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
