    This dish is delicious and super easy! My go to when there is little time but a good size group to cook for. I seared the chicken in a pan before going into the oven and this gave the skin a crispy texture that was a success! Thank you MS!

    I made this with a couple of modifications: I didn't have cardamom, so I left that out. I mixed the spices with the olive oil and juice from half of a lemon and marinated the chicken in that. I then grilled the chicken. It came out perfectly - so flavorful!!!

    I made this chicken, along with the carrots and couscous and date nut cookie sandwiches from the Feb issue of MSL, and it was a resounding success. The flavors are fantastic, and overall, it's a very quick and easy meal to prepare, and it delivers!

    OUTSTANDING ! FIVE STARS!!! Definitly make this recipe. I used split chicken breasts. So succulent and moist! The house smelled great! I made the carrots and the couscous too. Couscous was a bit bland , but when I took a bite with the chicken it complimented it perfectly!!! I will make the entire dish again . Definitly a new favorite! With the leftovers I made a delicious moroccan chicken salad.

    This was so easy to make and it tasted really good! I made it with the recommended couscous (but without olives) and glazed carrots and ginger. Everyone loved it! And the prep took me all of 5 minutes, it's so simple.

    to DC2 -- did you use regular or kosher salt? Martha usually uses kosher in her recipes because it has a clear flavor and has no additives or iodine. The flakes of kosher salt are bigger than regular iodized salt so generally in recipes, you would use 1/2 the amount of regular salt as of kosher salt. Using the Foreman grill is a great idea!

    Recommend reducing the salt to 1 teaspoon. I used my George Forman Grill. Put paste on Chicken let sit for about 1 hour. Added chicken and lemon quarters to 350 degree grill and cooked for 10 mins. Lemons carmelized Juice was sweet. It was fabulous! Lots of wonderful flavors. Sweet, salty and spicy.
