Morning Everyone

Hope you all had a great weekend. Ours was very productive , got to spend time with friends and family can not get much better then that. This week we are going to cook with a lot of chicken as it was on special at Thriftys.

Monday. Moraccan Chicken
Tuesday. Sweet and Spicy Chicken Legs
Wednesday. Slow Cooker Pork Steaks
Thursday. Chicken Parmasen Bundles
Friday. Chicken Wings

Below is your recipe for Moraccan Chicken. Not sure if you have had any moraccan food before but I find it quite good. You use some spices that you might not have on hand but you can buy them in bulk at some stores and also in small bags if you do not want to buy a whole bottle. But I think you will find that you will like these spices and can add them to other main dishes that you cook down the road.

Moraccan Chicken

1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast meat - cubed
2 teaspoons salt
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 carrots, sliced
2 stalks celery, sliced
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root
1/2 teaspoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 cup crushed tomatoes
1 cup canned chickpeas, drained
1 zucchini, sliced
1 tablespoon lemon juice


Season chicken with salt and brown in a large saucepan over medium heat until almost cooked through. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
Saute onion, garlic, carrots and celery in same pan. When tender, stir in ginger, paprika, cumin, oregano, cayenne pepper and turmeric; stir fry for about 1 minute, then mix in broth and tomatoes. Return chicken to pan, reduce heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes.
Add chickpeas and zucchini to pan and bring to simmering once again; cover pan and cook for about 15 minutes, or until zucchini is cooked through and tender. Stir in lemon juice and serve.
I like to serve this over rice. You might want to look into investing into an electric rice cooker they are not very expensive and worth the investment.
Have a good day ....
