Recipe Ingredients for Morrocan chicken

1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, thinly sliced
2 carrots, diced
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 1/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon finely grated ginger
1/2 cup plain low fat yogurt
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup toasted almonds, chopped
1 cup basmati rice

Recipe Directions for Morrocan chicken

  1. Heat oven to 400 F.

  2. Rinse the chicken thighs and pat dry. Cut each thigh in half. Season the pieces with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper.

  3. Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven or skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until browned, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate. Add the onion, carrots, and garlic and cook for 1 minute. Pour in the broth and cook, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan, for 1 minute. Add the cinnamon, ginger, and the remaining salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and whisk in the yogurt. Stir in the raisins, almonds, rice, and browned chicken. Transfer to an oiled 8-by-11-inch baking dish or 2-quart casserole.
