Favourite Recipe Friday

Good morning!

This is one of our favourite recipes (as the title of the post suggests). If you want something tasty, easy, and fairly nutritious, Moroccan Chicken is the dish for you.

What you’ll need:

6-8 chicken thighs (boneless/skinless)

1 cup salsa

1/4 cup chicken broth

2 tsp Tabasco sauce

2 tsp honey

1 tsp ground cumin

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp chipotle chili powder

1/2 tsp saffron threads (not necessary)

5 garlic cloves, minced

1/3 cup golden raisins (I use dried cranberries as raisins bother me for some reason)

1/3 cup toasted almonds (throw in the microwave for 2 minutes to toast)


What you do:

Put the chicken in the Crock-Pot, throw in all the other ingredients on top and cook on low for 6-8 hours. We have a hot Crock-Pot so I typically put every recipe on simmer if it is going to be cooking the entire day.

Serve with quinoa or rice.

This recipe is most definitely a crowd pleaser and the best part, you can make it in a Crock-Pot. Yeah for Crock-Pots!
