This easy one-pan Moroccan Chicken is an ideal healthy dinner recipe. It’s quick to make, balanced and tasty so the whole family will enjoy it. It’s great for meal prep or midweek meals when you crave a quick and healthy recipe.
You can get Moroccan spice from almost all major supermarkets. If not, this recipe will also work with other spice mixes e.g. Portuguese. You can easily make your own Moroccan spice mix. Mix: 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp coriander (ground), 1/2 tsp cayenne, 1/2 tsp pepper.
This recipe works well with thigh or breast! I haven’t tried it with pearl (Israeli) couscous but a follower of mine did and apparently, it worked wonderfully too. Awesome.
If your pieces of chicken are large, it’ll need to cook for longer. I simply cut mine if they are too big. This also helps with portion control. FYI: In the photos, I used 400g of chicken so each piece if about 50g.
The bigger the casserole dish, the more vegetables you can add! If you can, add a sliced red onion or use a bit more zucchini or capsicum to load up on the veg.
Chicken stock would also work well here.
