Moroccan Chicken Dinner

4 years ago

For our July 4th dinner I decided to make some Moroccan chicken. I know, seems strange to make something totally not classic American dish on the 4th of July...but whatever. I wanted to eat it, so I did! LOL!

This was the first time I had attempted to make this. For some reason the list of many spices intimidated me. It wasn`t that it was hard to make, just lots of spices. It was a time consuming meal to make, though. I think it took about an hour and a half to make. There are a lot of steps of putting the chicken into the pan, take it out, mix this and that, put the thicken back in, lid get the picture.

<Strong>INGREDIENT LIST:</Strong>
-chicken parts (I used drumsticks)
-cinnamon stick
-ground ginger
-extra virgin olive oil
-garlic (fresh)
-cayenne pepper
-chicken stock/broth
-green olives
-lemon zest

I served mine over rice, though I don`t believe that is traditionally what it would be over. I think it would typically be alone or over couscous. I didn`t have any in the house and didn`t think to pick any up. I always have white rice in the pantry, though.

On the side I put a few of the potato wedges that were left overs from an earlier meal from the week. Waste not want not, right?

This was a zingy meal with a bit of heat. It was very good, though. I enjoyed it. However, my husband said it wasn`t one of his favorite meals... and my son refused to eat the meat. LOL! Picky boys... really picky boys. I understand why my son didn`t eat it, because of the spice. My husband is very strange about strong flavor. I think it was just too many spices for his narrow palette. Sometimes I feel my cooking goes to waste with these two. HAHAHAHA! ah well. I enjoyed it.
