What’s not to love when you hear Moroccan grilled chicken? Specially on a week day evening, when you get home later than usual and craving for something delicious. This recipe of Moroccan Grilled chicken skewers is super easy and uses your store cupboard staples. Nothing fancy, just great flavour combinations. I came across this recipe on Half Baked Harvest’s blog one morning when on the train to work. I immediately knew what I was to cook for dinner that night.
The Moroccan marination is beautiful, I’ve noticed using olive oil in marination makes the chicken really tender. You don’t need to be super organised like marinating overnight. Just 15-20 mins of marination also does that trick rather well.
The first time I made these skewers I served them alongside a quick easy cucumber, tomato salad with a lemon and goats cheese dressing. But the next time we were hungrier, so I served on a warm pitta bread, slathered goats cheese onto the bread and served the chicken on a bed of salad. Bliss!
I promise you this will make you wonder why you didn’t make this recipe before. It is the simplest of ingredients, but the end product is beautiful!
