    Fantastic tasting chicken dish. I loved the mix of textures in this one.

    This was an amazing dish- the fragrances of the rosewater and cinnamon together, with the roasting smells of the hazelnuts and honey, elevated this beyond any other chicken dish I've ever had.

    I followed the recipe exactly, except for cutting the chicken into six pieces as we found the four-piece cut in the other chicken recipe a bit unwieldy. We loved everything about this dish, the smells while cooking, the textural contrasts, the beguiling flavors. I would warn against this dish for people who don't like floral, perfume-like essences in their foods. The rose water is very prevalent in both smell and taste. I loved it. The taste and heady aroma just transported me to an exotic locale.
