The dates give the chicken a honey-like flavor. Pair this with couscous.

    4 out of 5 in my family enjoyed this dish. The final flavor surprised me. And I would recommend rice or couscous. I used 1tsp dried ground ginger, and 8 dried pitted dates that I minced and combined with the chicken during the last 15min it was cooking in the dutch oven

    I tried this recipe and was pleased with the results. It's a little different than the usual chicken recipes but the fresh lemon and cilantro in it pair well with the dates and chicken. Very good with couscous, which is SO easy to prepare and also with quinoa (pronounced keen-wa). Good way to introduce your family to something both sweet and savory.
