Recipe Note

- When separating chicken drumstick from thigh, place the tip of the knife right into the joint and then the flesh should cut easily apart

- A “large dice” is a like a rough chop, but with uniformly sized pieces

- Preserved lemons are easily made and stored in the refrigerator to have on hand for adding to all types of recipes; otherwise, the ethnic section of your grocery store should carry these. They are preserved in salt, so will lessen the necessity to add a lot of salt to your finished dish

- Brown the chicken in batches to prevent overcrowding, starting with half the cooking oil for the first batch and adding the remainder for the second batch.
