  1. The posted cooking time of 30 minutes for the North Africn Braised Chicken appears to be about 90 minutes too short.

    First the cooking time is way off. I made this tonight but instead of tops I used bottoms. My husband liked it, I personally don’t like raisins so I picked them out, but otherwise it was good. I served it over bulger instead of couscous. It was really easy to follow and not to many ingredients which is a big plus.
