Moroccan Chicken sounds totally out there, but when you see the recipe and taste the chicken…
If this chicken has the flavors of Morocco, I would love a culinary adventure to Morocco. Until then, I will make this recipe and look for a restaurant that has similar flavors. I believe that cinnamon in anything is great, so adding it to this chicken dish was very intriguing. This is a meal that is definitely better with time. For those that are working on tight schedules and doing meal preparation on the weekend, this recipe is perfect to eat the next day. The Cozy Apron has a hit with this recipe, I decided to increase the level of spice to coat the chicken more,
The recipe is a basic braise and will leave you with moist and flavorful chicken.
A mix of Northern African seasonings is coated on the chicken breasts (smoked paprika, cumin, cinnamon, salt and pepper)
When the chicken is seasoned and drizzled with olive oil brown the pieces on all sides, and set the chicken aside to cook the vegetables.
When the vegetables soften the chicken broth was added and the chicken was returned to the pan to braise. (garbanzo beans, tomatoes, onions, tomato paste, and garlic)
Once the chicken has fully cooked, you will want to eat it immediately, but resist, because when you pair this chicken with lemon almond couscous, you will not be disappointed. Visit The Cozy Apron for the full recipe.
