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.

    What do you use for chicken? My family raised our own this summer, (organic, pastured/free-range, soy-free), but they are frozen whole. Trouble with a quick meal is I can’t roast a whole bird quickly! We do use leftovers, if there are any, in dishes, but there are innumerable recipes which call for chicken parts. I steer away from conventional meat whenever possible, thinking gmo corn and soy-fed poultry was not so good. We choose organic whenever possible, but still all grain fed, usually with soy, and way out of our price range unless i buy whole birds from local amish, which leaves me back at the roasting a whole bird dilemma. What kind of chicken breast should i look for, and where? I’d love to try this recipe!

    Approved by an actual Moroccan! 🙂 My husband, who is Moroccan, liked it. I added a bit more water to have a bit more sauce. Was great. I will definitely be adding this to our menu.

    Great recipe! Mine could have used some more liquid, so next time I think I will up the liquid and mix the spices into the liquid to make it a bit saucier. Then combine the sauce with the other ingredients. I might add some cashews too. Great flavor!

    This was another winner. My hubs made it tonight while I played with the littles. He said it was easy and everyone enjoyed the flavors. The raisins and green olives were an especially big hit. Thanks for another nutritious, tasty, and easy recipe!

    We absolutely LOVED this!  My kids thought it was so cool to have raisins with chicken. 😉  My husband and i really enjoyed the different flavor profile….I didn’t cut down on the spices at all, and we all enjoyed it.  Thank you SO much, this is sure to be in the ‘regular rotation’ at my house!  Nice and different….and just as you said, quick and easy!
