Moroccan Baked Chicken — Delicious spiced chicken thighs baked with savory onions, potatoes, rainbow carrots and tangy olives. I love serving this with basmati rice or pita bread for dipping into the sauce. This dish comes together so quickly with the help of Spice Tribe Marrakesh Sitar spice blend. You can bake this in an oven safe skillet or baking sheet.

 

 

This moroccan baked chicken comes together very quickly with jst a few products and the most important one is the Spice Tribe Marrakesh Sitar spice blend. This blend is aromatic, floral and sweet and being Middle Eastern, I know a good quality spice when I smell it! I was very impressed by the quality of the blend. This spice blend is made up of Coriander, Honey, Turmeric, Cinnamon Cassia, Paprika, Rosebud, Cumin, Orange Peel, Allspice and Green Cardamom. This is the reason why I love spice blends — the average person won’t have all these spices in their kitchen cabinet. Getting this Spice Tribe Marrakesh Sitar spice blend or the Spice Tribe Ancient Halaby ( Middle Eastern Chile Blend) spice blends allows you to make so many different types of middle eastern flavored dishes without purchasing 6-7 individual spices– you just grab ONE product and it spices the whole dish. I used both the Marrakesh Sitar spice blend and the Spice Tribe Ancient Halaby spice blend.

 

 

I hope you give this dish a try. It’s a family favorite!
