I've been wanting to try a Moroccan recipe since I first received a bottle of 'McCormick Moroccan Seasoning' from the McCormick Company. Well, I finally found this recipe...Moroccan Chicken on Weelicious.com. After reading some of the comments on that recipe I decided that I would add fresh garlic and a veggie. But then during the cooking process I realized I needed to tweak the technique also.
I ended up browning the garlic and onions with the moroccan seasoning! WOW, it filled my kitchen with so much delicious toasted spice aroma! And it really enhances the flavor of the seasoning! The Weelicious recipe called for seperate spices to create a Moroccan flavor. But I just used an equal amount of the McCormick Moroccan Seasoning instead! It worked perfectly!
I'm not a fan of chickpeas, unless they're oven roasted with lots of seasoning or if they're in a VERY flavorful hummus! So, I decided to use cannellini beans instead. And I added some petite peas for color.
This meal was everything I hoped it would be! I felt like I was transported to a fine Moroccan restaurant! The beans helped to thicken the sauce and the chicken was so tender. I served this with couscous. The only thing missing was some Moroccan flat-bread to soak up the delicious sauce. I'll be including that next time I make this meal! Below the photo of my finished dish is my version of the recipe.
