Very good. A nice change from the ordinary. Served with cumin potatoes (on the site) and orange and red onion salad (also on site). The combination was yummy.
Merlot, this was FANTASTIC, even though I forgot to open the can of chick peas and put them in! I finished this with chopped preserved lemon and parsley (like gremolata) and we ate it with my Cumin Potatoes, and Dancer's Orange Salad with Olives and Mint Orange Salad With Olives & Mint and Oven bake Turkish breaf. What a feast.
This was my first recipe from Recipe Zaar I have tried so far & it was a hit. I served it with feta, lemon & pinenut couscous and sundried tomato & feta bread. I think I may have salted the chicken a little to much when it was first cooking but other than that I wouldn't have changed a thing. MéLisa
This dish made a lovely dinner that everyone enjoyed. I did make some small changes though. I used whole green olive instead of pimento stuffed, preserved lemon for the lemon zest, & doubled the amount of paprika. Made for Went to Market Tag
My husband and I recently went to Morocco, and this recipe is so close to the real thing! The only thing we need now is an authentic tagine to cook it in!!! Maybe add some raisins or apricots or dates...
Beautiful entree. I cut the cinnamon to 1/8 teaspoon (personal preference) & used boneless chicken breasts- sliced in half lengthwise and cooked for 1/2 the time. This has a nice amount of flavor, but is not over-the-top flavor explosion despite the combo of ingredients. A good dish that would suit many taste-buds. We enjoyed this.
After reading all of the 5 star reviews I was expecting wow. We were a bit disappointed flavorwise. It was pleasant and a dish I would make again with adjustments. Maybe the problem is I was expecting bolder flavors. This really is quite mild and would be a good introduction to the cuisine for many families. It is visually appealing too. I used a cut up whole chicken & left out the garbanzo beans. Overall I am happy I tried it and would recommend it to others. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
We loved this, the flavours went together beautifully and the chicken was very tender. This was my first attempt at moroccan chicken and I'll be making this dish again. I served it with couscous and extra lemon. Thanx for posting Merlot!.
This Moroccan chicken recipe is just truly special. The olives, the chick/peas the paprika, and the lemons just melt together coupled with the cinnamon to make the chicken taste uniquely scrumptious. Savory, delicious and the chicken was so tender you could eat it with a spoon. I used bone in thighs, and kept basting the juices over the chicken, as well as tasting as I went along, well...because I couldn't help it. There was almost hardly any sauce left for my DH because I just adored it. Thanks so very much, Merlot. A very special recipe from a very special lady.
I'm a big fan of Moroccan Chicken, this was so delicious. The flavours all worked well together. I kept to the recipe except didn't add the chick peas (forgot to pick them up from the supermarket). Thank you Merlot for a wonderful recipe
