Slow-Cooked Moroccan Chicken

Slow-Cooked Moroccan Chicken from Parents magazine will tide you over until holiday favorites start coming at us.

We’re about to get pummeled by holiday comfort food recipes, and I’ll surely be part of that parade, so I’m using this small window of time to try something a little unusual.
When I was about 11, my parents took us to Disney World and Epcot Center. It started pouring rain, and we ducked into the first restaurant we could find. It had a Moroccan-themed menu, and my mom’s food was devastatingly spicy. She actually got sick and went out to the car while we watched the laser show.
I don’t remember liking mine either, so it was a long time before I went out on this culinary tightrope again.
Thank goodness I did. This stuff can be amazing if you get the right recipe. Most of it is pretty simple to make, too:
Just a few spices, meat, often dried fruit and adjustable heat.
This recipe, for Slow-Cooked Moroccan Chicken features prunes and curry, which might sound strange, but combine to form a delightfully tasty adventure.
Keep in mind also that Moroccan cooking doesn’t require a whole lot of fat or calories. In fact, this recipe only offers 255 calories, a steal considering all its flavor.
And it’s not terribly spicy either, meaning you shouldn’t have to go sleep in your car.
