Moroccan-Style Chicken
55 mins (prep 10, cooking 45)
14 ingredients
4 servings
Moroccan-style chicken which can be served on a bed of steamed couscous or rice. The chicken is garnished with paprika and parsley, with a tahini sauce mixed with a blend of herbs on the side. Made from sesame seeds, tahini is an excellent source of both calcium and protein. This recipe is from an International Masters '1001 recipes for pan or wok' recipe card, and has been posted for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. Don't be daunted by the seemingly long list of ingredients: most are herbs and spices! You can vary the proportions of the herbs - parsley, mint and coriander - to suit your taste preferences, as long as you have 3 tablespoons in total. The preparation and cooking times do not include the 30 minutes needed for marinating the chicken.
