This is a simpler version of my recipe Traditional Moroccan Chicken. Peeled potato wedges can be added during step 3 when the chicken is turned over.

This dish was a hit for us. 6 stars. I used chicken tenders added in just a bit of butter and flour and sauted with the spices before adding the water. I made everything in a dutch oven and probably more thand doubled the seasonings as I just mentally measure and it was a beautiful sauce. I aslo added the whole preserved lemon chopped up and added fresh garlic,chickpeas and potato to make it a one dish meal. Thanks this recipe goes into my favs. Made for Ramadan Tag 09.
