I'm the kind of person that gets my Asian ingredients from Target so you know authenticity is not an issue at our house. I mean, we live in a society of P.F. Chang and Olive Garden so what's wrong with Rachael Ray's Middle-Eastern Chicken Pot? It turned out really yummy and I used dried apricots as my fruit of choice. Since my hubby's not a fan of nuts, I just served the chicken over plain (buttered) couscous and it was an amazing meal! Thanks again Rachael Ray!
