No-Hassle Braised Moroccan Chicken

How About Moroccan Chicken For Sunday Night Dinner? Whaaaaat?

At the time of testing this recipe, it was Sunday and the house was full-and by that I mean, my dog is here for the weekend. He usually stays at my parent’s home since he has the company of another dog and well, more space. Anyway, with him being here I needed to find a recipe that would require as little attention to active cooking as possible.

And that is why I bring you a delightful recipe for Braised Moroccan Chicken by The Defined Dish.

Oh, friends, one day we’ll review every one of her recipes, I’m sure.

Before we get going with this delicious Moroccan chicken, let me share the recipe link with you. You can find this recipe right -> here

Prep is a Breeze!

The reason why I love Dutch Oven recipes is that most of the work that needs to be done is during prep, and even then it’s pretty minimal. Time is the greatest ingredient in this recipe, because it truly marries the flavors together and allows them to bring the dish together.

If you’re having a busy day or if you’re stressing out about a family meal, then this is a recipe you definitely should consider. Once the chicken pieces are seared and the spices are added, time and heat will do the rest of the work until the chicken is basically falling off the bone.

By the explosion of flavor in every bite, you wouldn’t think that so little effort went into making it happen. It is bound to be a crowd-pleaser. Or well, socially-distant crowd, right?

All the Flavor Without the Hassle

Something that I always look for when finding new recipes is great flavor without having to spend hours upon hours in the kitchen. As much as I love cooking, I like to have some time to relax, as well. Everyone wants to make something that tastes delicious, but how many times have you second-guessed yourself because you haven’t made something before and end up too nervous/stressed to try? I know I have on multiple occasions, but this recipe is one for your repeat list. I know it’s on mine.

These types of recipes are almost foolproof, so taking a chance on this recipe is definitely worth it.

What About Serving Suggestions?

This recipe on its own is very lean, so you can keep going that route with a lean side. Just like the Defined Dish did, I ended up making cauliflower rice with sautéed spinach and garlic. It was light and still so very flavorful while complementing the delicious flavor of the Moroccan Chicken.

Of course, if you’re not a fan of cauliflower rice, then I’d suggest jasmine rice or even couscous for that delicious Moroccan flavor. It all ends up being up to you and what flavors you like.

Grey’s Grade: 5/5

When you’re stressed out, the last thing you want to worry about is dinner turning out. I know I’m not alone in this. The reason I give this a full 5/5 is because it required so little effort and it ended up being so delicious. And we had leftovers for lunch the next day, so no complaints there!

Also while this recipe may be hassle-free, it does require certain equipment…the Dutch Oven. While great makes of this pot are not cheap, they certainly are a great investment for your kitchen. I use a 3.5 qt. Le Creuset Oval Dutch Oven with a Grill Pan Lid. You can find out more about this item on the official Le Creuset website. It’s a fantastic tool in the kitchen.

This recipe certainly isn’t impossible without it, but it absolutely makes it that much easier.
