Moroccan Chicken Thighs
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Cook: 40 min.
I don't often use dates in my cooking, but this spicy, exotic dish is something I will make again and again. The whole family liked the taste, and it was easy to double - or triple - to feed a family. I used boneless thighs (because they were on sale) and that made it easier to expand the recipe. The couscous can be made without the toasted almonds, but they added a nice touch.
The house smelled amazing. It seemed like a lot of ingredience but all things l have on hand. The second time making it was much quicker. This is a go to recipe. Janet VFE
This recipe provided some "exotic" notes to the chicken thighs. Our family tends to like Mediterranean-Middle East dishes, so I gave it a try. Everyone gave a thumbs-up! I will NOT be increasing the spice mixture as some other reviewers stated--I think the spice amounts were quite adequate as is. At least try the spice amounts as written before adjusting for subsequent renditions; otherwise, you might think the flavors to be overwhelming. I made as written and will not be making any changes.
Excellent. The spice blend has a heavenly aroma as the chicken cooks. I doubled up on broth to have more gravy. I added sliced mushrooms to the couscous. Great dish!
My family and I loved this recipe! I didn't have any dates so I substituted chopped raisins which worked beautifully. Next time I will increase the spices (we like a more bold flavor) and use boneless thighs instead of bone-in.
I double my spices on this recipe and up the amount of chicken broth and flour to make more sauce, the sauce and spices are so flavorful, sometimes I’ll skip the chick and bake some butternut squash, use vegetable broth instead of chicken and make it vegetarian, it’s just as good. This is a go to recipe for me it’s delicious.
I bought a case of couscous and was looking for recipes to make it. Found this and am so glad I did. This is incredible, so flavorful. Recipe sound complicate with a lengthy ingredient list but it is not complicated at all and most of the ingredients are items I usually have on hand. Will definitely be making this again, soon. Thanks for sharing.
This is a winner! I don't normally do anything fancy on a school night, but this was a snap. I tripled the recipe, put the chicken in a baking dish in a 200 degree oven to keep warm while I cooked the onions (didn't have shallots). I love dates, but only had dried apricots and they tasted great. Next time I will double the sauce too! Really great recipe!
This was really yummy, I have to agree the sauce was so good. I loved the dates with it as well. I don't think I will make it often though because it is a bit lengthy.
