  1. In a large shallow baking dish, combine chicken pieces with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, lemon peel, lemon juice, cinnamon, ginger, cumin, salt and cayenne. Work the spice mixture into the chicken pieces, cover and marinate in the refrigerator 4 to 6 hours or overnight.

Simmer, covered 20 minutes. Add prunes, honey and lemon slices. Simmer 20 minutes or until chicken is tender. Remove chicken to a serving dish, spoon sauce over chicken and sprinkle with almonds and parsley. Serve with couscous.
