Moroccan chicken

Submitted by: PHRASER


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    480g chicken breast (trimmed of visible fat and cubed)
    2 onions, sliced
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 410g can apricot halves in juice (undrained)
    1 410g can of chickpeas (drained)
    4 tablespoons moroccan spice blend (the one I buy has cinnamon, coriander, ginger, cumin seeds, paprika, but no salt)
    1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
    60g almonds (optional, not in nutrition info)
    2 tablespoons tomato puree (optional, not in nutrition info)
    1 tsp cornflour (cornstarch) (optional, not in nutrition info)

Directions

Cook onion and garlic in oil until transparent. Add chicken and spice blend, cook 1-2 minutes until fragrant and chicken is sealed, taking care not to burn spices.
Add remaining ingredients and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes. Remove lid to thicken if desired.

2 tablespoons tomato paste can be added for flavour if desired. 1 tsp cornflour (cornstarch) can be carefully whisked into the apricot juice to thicken if required.

Serve with steamed vegetables, and cous cous with chopped almonds, cumin and currants.

Makes 4 generous servings.
