I halved the capers only because I didn't have as much on hand as the recipe called for. Hubby said he was glad I cut back on the capers and suggested adding a little more date next time. I agree with Brinnet's comment that you really need the tomato and cucumber (and lime) on top to cut the richness of the sauce. Pan fried the chicken and subbed quinoa for cous cous. Hubby doesn't like quinoa nor cucumbers, but with this dish, he ate every last bite (and I'd piled a lot of cucumber and quinoa on his plate!)
UPDATE: I gave this recipe to a friend, who made it for me. She got confused and accidentally used figs instead of dates. The recipe is delicious with the figs, also, though not nearly as sweet. It didn't need the citrus, tomato and cucumber as much as the date version does. While I personally like the date version better, people who prefer it to be a little less sweet may like the fig version better.
