    Baz's Note:

    I have adapted the best of three other moroccan chicken recipes (primarily the Million Dollar Chicken) to produce this one. The main difference is it uses more authentic ingredients like harissa paste, onions and chick peas. This is now one of my favourite dishes.

      Really easy recipe. Just got back from Morocco and found this to be quite authentic.

      I wish I could give this one more stars Baz. Thanks for the recommendation! I made this using Peter Watson Harissa (for any Aussies out there) and as I was unsure of it's strength, I used only 6 teaspoons. Next time I'll use the full 2 metric tablespoons!. The only change I made to this recipe was to add 1 teaspoon of salt and to use only enough chicken for the two of us whilst keeping the sauce ingredients the same. We ate this over cous cous flavoured with chicken stock and shredded preserved lemon. I will be making this again, and next time I'll sprinkle a half a handful of chopped fresh parsley over it at the end.

      This recipe has been around for a while, but I just got into Moroccan food and made this as my first attempt. Made my own harissa from another recipe on this site. We are big Indian food / curry fans but had never had this type of food. The house smelled divine while this was cooking. Oh my, great flavors! This is a winner and a keeper for us.
