i was wanting something different and found this recipe. Instead of using the carrots/parsnips and peas, i used 1 can of corn and 1 can of green beans. We also served it over rice instead of the bread. The bread sounded wonderful but we had none in our cupboards at the time. The rice worked just as well.

How to Make morrocan chicken with tomatoes and potatoes

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large pot, heat oil and saute' onion and garlic. (I also used a couple jalepeno's) Add chicken, tomatoes, red pepper, parsley, paprika, saffron, and 1/2 cup of water. Cover and cook aobut an hour (until chicken is thoroughly cooked and just beginning to shred when handled much), stirring occasionally.
  2. Add water as necessary to keep mixture wet and saucy (maybe 2 cups total by the end of the process). Add potatoes, carrots/parsnips, and peas and cook for another 20-30 minutes, or until potatoes and carrots are completely cooked. Salt and pepper as you like.
  3. Now, if you want to eat in authentic Morracan style, dish onto a large plate and serve with lots of bread (something crusty like French works well).
  4. Using the bread as the only untensil, everyone eats out of their section of the plate (using the right hand only). Wow, a culture where playing in your food is the norm!
