A Few Simple Spices Take Chicken To The Middle East
Who knew four little spices could transport you to another country? Simply add some olives and dried apricots and you've got a delicious meal that will keep them coming back for more.
When it comes to cooking chicken there are so many different choices, you could easily have chicken every night of the week and never have the same dish twice. And, since I love chicken, I'm always on the lookout for a new recipe, but I must admit, even I wasn't sure about this one. I mean, it calls for green olives and dried apricots; those are not two flavors I would ever consider putting together. It's okay, be honest, they sound horrible together, right? To make matters worse, the recipe called for chicken thighs. That's right, that part of the bird that gets a horrible rap for being too fatty and high in cholesterol. In truth, however, the fat isn't too bad, and I do love all the spices needed to make the rub.
So, I figured, why not? I love chicken, dried apricots, and green olives and, if I like them all separately, maybe they'll be great together. Well, I'm so happy I took the leap and made this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens. It was sweet and spicy and absolutely delicious. I want to make it again and something tells me you will, too.
