Very North African in flavour! Spice mix can be used with fish and a flavouring for rice. You could serve this dish with Couscous, rice, pilaf or even steamed baby potatoes

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brush chicken breasts with olive oil and sprinkle with enough spice mix to coat both sides.
  2. Heat about a tbs of oil in a pan and sauté the chicken for about 4 minutes each side (careful not to overcook!).
  3. For spice mix: Combine everything and store in a jar or bottle.

lovely. great color and crust on the chicken. i threw a little of the spice mix in my couscous and shallots too. and served with acorn squash roasted with maple syrup.

I just made this, and the chicken came out with a great depth of flavor. I did make one change though, I didn't have any orange rind, so instead of brushing the chicken breast with olive oil I brushed it with Orange Juice(with pulp) and sprinkled the spice on both sides. The spice stuck well, and I used about a 1 teaspoon of olive oil to lightly fry the chicken.

What a fantastic recipe!! I used thighs and legs with the skin on - and rubbed a ton of the spices into the chicken and let it marinate for two days. EXCELLENT!!! Broiled the chicken until the spice rub became a browned, caramelized crust ..wonderful! Try it with Moroccan Rice #82603 - you won't believe how good these are together. Thanks Julie!!! --
