Low Fat Moroccan Chicken

Low Fat Moroccan Chicken

I love this Low Fat Moroccan chicken recipe. There is something about the combination of what should usually be a savory dish, with the exotic flavor of cinnamon and cilantro.


3 tsp olive oil

4 chicken breasts fillets, skinless

1 onion, chopped

1 shredded zucchini

1 tsp minced garlic

2 Tbsp fresh cilantro leaves

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 cup chicken broth (preferibly, low sodium broth)

1 x 225 g (8 oz) can of chick peas, drained.

1/4 cup of sultanas/raisins

6 prunes, pitted and chopped

2 Tbsp orange juice

This is what you do:

Heat oil in a large non-stick frying pan, and fried the chicken for 3 minutes, turning it over once. Set aside.

Now, cook the onion, zucchini and garlic in the frying pan, stirring for about 4 minutes, till they go tender. Add the cilantro and cinnamon, and keep stirring for a minute.

Add the broth and bring the whole thing to a boil.

Finally, add the cooked chicken and chick peas, sultanas and prunes. Then simmer for about 10 minutes. Add the orange juice, and continue simmering for another 5 minutes till the mixture goes thick.
