Moroccan chicken

It is time for a culinary flashback . Today i am cooking a dish that i last ate 10   years ago . A middle eastern shop in my mother’s town was selling couscous and Moroccan chicken for take away , she used to buy it for my sisters and i every week ends. The chef never gave his recipe away after many attempts .  So today i tried to remember  the flavors of the  dish , and using ingredients and spices that i have in my kitchen , i cooked this chicken dish that was very good but  was missing something . This recipe is a work in progress.

  1. I love Moroccan food! I’m always intimidated to make it because I don’t have a Tagine and I wasn’t sure I could make it in a regular oven dish…This recipe looks super simple! Will definitely try it.
