Moroccan Chicken

Submitted by: NATALIEMARKIS

Introduction

I have seen many variations of this recipe. You can add other spices such as curry powder, cinnamon, fennel, coriander, cardemom, clove, cilantro and other fruits and veggies such as raisins, granny smith apples, apricots, plums, acorn or butternut squash, kalamata olives, all types of peppers, even peanuts. I've seen it prepared with wild rice or couscous. It looks like the possibilities are endless. Let me know if you come up with a different combination than seen below. Just make sure you watch your carbs! Thanks! I have seen many variations of this recipe.
