If you didn’t know already, I love Moroccan food, like absolutely adore it! Morocco would probably be one of the most interesting countries I’ve visited in my travels. I went back for my 21st birthday on a trip with my sister, but I’d so love to go back again and revisit the markets and of course, the food!
What I loved about the food, was that, despite the fact that a lot of dishes were heavier dishes, the food still felt super light and fresh and jam-packed with flavour. They use a lot of spices in their cooking, and if you wander around the markets, you can smell the flavours of Morocco wafting through the air.

Moroccan Chicken Stew
A fast and delicious Moroccan Chicken Stew that's bursting with flavours! On the table in under 40 minutes, this feeds a crowd and is so easy to make!
- 1 tbsp plain all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp ground coriander
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp ground paprika
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 lbs Foster Farms Boneless Skinless Chicken Thigh Fillets cut into 1"/2.5cm pieces
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 yellow/brown onions cut into wedges
- 3 garlic cloves minced
- 28 oz can crushed tomatoes undrained
- 15 oz can chickpeas rinsed and drained
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/3 cup small pitted ripe olives
- 3 cups hot cooked couscous
- 1/4 cup snipped fresh cilantro
Combine the flour, coriander seed, cumin, paprika, cinnamon and salt and pepper in a small bowl.
Add the chicken, and coat until well combined.
In a 4-quart Dutch Oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
Saute the onions and garlic for 4-6 minutes or until tender. Remove the onions and garlic from the pot with a slotted spoon, but keep the remaining oil.
Add the chicken to the Dutch Oven, half at a time. Cook quickly until the chicken is lightly browned, stirring frequently.
Return all the chicken and the onion mixture to the pan.
Add tomatoes, chickpeas, water, raisins and olives.
Bring to the boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until chicken is tender.
Serve over the cooked couscous and garnish with the cilantro.
To make the couscous, pour one cup of dried couscous into a heatproof bowl. Season with about 1/2 a teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Pour 1 cup of boiling hot water over the couscous and place a large plate over the bowl to trap the heat. Do not stir the couscous! Let the couscous sit for about 10 minutes, if there is still a lot of liquid, leave absorb further. Once it's ready, use a fork to roughly fluff up the couscous for serving.
