This is an easy and fast Moroccan chicken stir-fry that I often make on busy nights. It has a lot of contrasting flavors and colors and we’re especially enjoying it now that our Broccoli is in season in the garden.
If your family isn’t used to these types of spices, start with half and work up from there 🙂 You can even omit the cumin, cinnamon and turmeric and just use salt, pepper and a little garlic powder for a much milder taste.
I get all of my herbs and spices from Mountain Rose Herbs since they are much cheaper in bulk and much higher quality that grocery store spices. (In fact, I keep over a dozen pre-made homemade spice blends on hand at all times for fast cooking).
