More About This Recipe
  • This simple chicken dish has a delicious Moroccan flair! International cuisine has always been my passion, and Moroccan food is no exception. Here we have a simplified, fuss-free Moroccan-inspired dish that’s full of flavor. It’s a wonderful sweet-spicy combination that’s packed with healthy ingredients. Speaking of ingredients, in this recipe you’ll enjoy many of the classic flavors of Morocco without having to worry about locating hard-to-find ingredients. If you can’t find harissa, use a spicy red chili paste of your choice. The cumin and coriander you’ll easily find in the spice section of your grocery store. Not only does this dish taste phenomenal, you’ll only have one pot to clean up after dinner—and that’s almost the best part of all.
