The one pan dinner fad maybe came and went but it’s still totally my thing! This One Pan Moroccan Chicken and Couscous is one of my favorite one pan dinners to date! It has a delicious blend of flavors and textures, it’s a healthy dinner, and it’s brimming with those irresistible deliciously spiced Moroccan flavors.
Moroccan Chicken Dinner
I’ve actually already made this dinner probably 4 or 5 times over the last few months so it’s due time that I shared it. It’s a combination of two summer favorites (this Grilled Moroccan Chicken and this Moroccan Couscous with Roasted Veggies and Chick Peas), but I blend them together into something that can be made together on the stovetop.
Layered together are diced chicken breasts, sauteed veggies, lemony couscous, sweet apricots or raisins, spices, fresh herbs, and sliced almonds and together they harmoniously create one unforgettable dish!
Because who wants a bland and boring chicken dinner??
How To Make Moroccan Chicken
My go-to almonds for this recipe are Fisher Almonds (you can use sliced or slivered).
The Delicious Addition of Almonds
Fisher nuts are non-GMO Project Verified and contain no preservatives. Plus there are over nine varieties of Fisher nuts that are verified by the American Heart Association as heart healthy so you can feel great about adding these to your favorite meals or snacking on them midday.
Also the pantry friendly stand-up bag helps keeps the nuts fresh!
I love Fisher nuts and this One Pan Moroccan Chicken and Couscous just wouldn’t be the same without them!
You can purchase Fisher nuts on Amazon.
