Recipe Ingredients for Magnificent Moroccan chicken

1/2 kg chicken, cut into pieces and skinned
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp cinnamon
1 freshly ground black pepper
2 tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, peeled and finely sliced
175 ml white wine
116 g lemons, washed and halved
175 g green olive, pitted
120 g chickpeas
75 g raisins
600 ml stock, chicken or vegetable
1 tbs Cilantro
1 tbs parsley

Recipe Directions for Magnificent Moroccan chicken

  1. Pat dry the chicken pieces. Combine all the spices in a large bowl, then add the chicken pieces to coat well with the spice mixture. Let the chicken marinate for 1 hour in the spices.

  2. In a large frying pan or non-stick saucepan with a lid, heat the olive oil over medium-heat. Add the chicken pieces and cook for 7 minutes, or until browned on all sides. Lower the heat to medium-low, then add the garlic and onion. Cover and cook for 15 minutes.

  3. Add the white wine (the alcohol will evaporate), lemon halves, olives, chickpeas, raisins, and stock. Bring to simmer over a medium heat, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook for an additional 35-45 minutes, stirring regularly, until the chicken is cooked through and tender.

  4. Mix in the chopped coriander and parsley, then serve immediately.

  5. Serve with spicy couscous or rice
