Creamy Cumin Chicken

    30 minutes

    A rich creamy chicken dish with a Middle Eastern flair and an enticing aroma! Serve over white rice or couscous. The spices can be adjusted; I use 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.  -  27 Oct 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Make sure your children like spicy dishes because this one I thought was a bit on the spicy side.  -  13 Mar 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I wish I could make believe I had eaten this. I made this last night and my five year old took one bite and said it was disgusting. He ended up eating a bowl of cereal for dinner. My very easy to please husband took his first bite and said it tastes like chicken and tomatoes. AND I almost doubled the cumin. (When I asked my husband what he would like for dinner tonight, he said "anything as long as it is not what you made last night.") I will not make this again.  -  17 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
