    We made this once as written and agreed with many other comments that it needed more flavor. Tonight we made it with double spices and added 1 tsp turmeric. I also shredded the chicken and stirred it up with the sauce to add flavor to more of the chicken. We served it with rice. Definitely will make again! The flavors are really nice and the uniqueness of the dish was a fun change from normal. Thanks so much for all your recipes. We cook from your website all the time!

    This was so bad I was the only one in the family who would even eat it. It was probably good before I added a cup of sugar (apricots). It’s sickeningly sweet. The only thing I’ve made in years that I will throw away.

  3. I double the spices and add 1 teaspoon tumeric. I put the spices on the chicken and chickpeas the night before. We love this recipe!

    This was pretty good for how easy it was. Wish I had read the reviews before making it, because it really needed turmeric.

    1. Also, I served it with brown rice pilaf, because I do not understand how shelf-stable, “whole” wheat pasta counts as real food. It isn’t whole at all – it’s merely white flour with the indigestible bran added back in (right?). The bran provides no more nutrients than the endosperm. I signed up for the sample meal plans on this site, but they call for things like Triscuits and pretzels. I am trying to quit eating nutitionally empty snack foods like that.

      The sample meal plans require a ton of from-scratch baking, and yet the recipes all call for shelf-stable flour, which is not truly whole grain. This seems like a huge discrepancy with the whole point of the blog is, unless I am misunderstanding something? Please explain.
