One-pan Moroccan Chicken with Couscous
This quick and easy dinner recipe is going to spice up your midweek meals. All the ingredients are cooked in the one-pan, which means less clean up for you.
A store-bought Moroccan spice mix is a key ingredient. You can get Moroccan spice from most major supermarkets in the spice section. (If not, no stress! Check out the notes section in the recipe for a homemade option).
And now, a few notes about this delicious and easy healthy recipe!
Use wholewheat couscous if you can. I couldn’t find any but you can often find it in the grains or health food aisle.
Depending on the chicken you buy, you’ll probably need to cut the thigh or breast in half. If you don’t, the cooking time will be a lot longer. A quick snip snip can save a lot of time!
Serve this recipe with some hummus for seriously tasty meal. About 1-2 Tbsp is awesome.
I really enjoy eating this healthy dinner recipe for lunch the next day. If you have a family of four, you might want to make two trays at the same time so everyone has healthy lunch the next day.
You can easily freeze this recipe so it’s a great healthy option for meal prep!
Both chicken thigh and breast would work really well. Be sure the chicken is cut to the same size so it cooks evenly.
Dried dates are perfectly fine for this recipe (and much cheaper). Woohoo!
Use a bigger dish if you have and add in even more vegetables!
It took me 4-5 attempts to get this recipe right so I’m delighted it’s here - and even better than I imagined.
I hope you enjoy this healthy one-pan, mid-week and family-friendly recipe :)
