MY REVIEW

"I doubled this recipe and made half chicken, half salmon. My food looked NOTHING like the photo. The glaze was WAY too thin. My food was swimming in liquid and the finished product didn't even appear to be "glazed." I recommend deleting the 1/3 cup (maybe that's a typo) chicken stock from the glaze and just smear a thin layer of fruit spread mixed with ginger over the food. The rice was fabulous. The dried apricots and fresh herbs really made it something special. Family loved the rice."

"Disclaimer: I am only rating/reviewing the salmon part of the recipe. We loved this salmon. I think fruit flavors pair really well with salmon and this was my first time trying apricot. It was awesome! I didn't use as much wine as called for because I wanted my glaze a little bit thicker. I thought the sliced almonds were mostly to make it look pretty, but they were so tasty with the salmon! I loved the crunch they gave. I will definitely be making this recipe again. It's so easy!"
