    Valeria's Note:

    I made this dish for my friends in Madrid and they liked it so much, they sucked the bones clean. This recipe is inspired by Moroccan cuisine, but it isn't entirely Moroccan. What makes it taste so good is the eclectic mix of flavors and the special marinade. Also, don't worry if you don't have a wok. A frying pan works fine.

      In a large shallow baking dish, combine chicken pieces with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, lemon peel, lemon juice, cinnamon, ginger, cumin, salt and cayenne. Work the spice mixture into the chicken pieces, cover and marinate in the refrigerator 4 to 6 hours or overnight.
    2. 2
      Heat a wok until hot. Add 1 tablespoon oil and swirl to coat wok. Arrange marinated chicken pieces on bottom and side of wok in a single layer and stir-fry 6 to 8 minutes or until golden. Remove chicken pieces to a clean baking dish.
