This chicken dish comes from the Moroccan city of Marrakesh, which is a real hot-pot of culinary delights. Moroccan food is known for being tasty and healthy and often based around chicken. The world-famous tagine cooking pot comes from this region, and many of the spices we take for granted in America came originally from Morocco too.
This recipe contains some amazing spices that you can get in your supermarket easily enough. Blended together they transform plain old chicken into something special.
