One-Pot Moroccan Chicken
large boneless and skinless chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise to form 4 thinner cutlets
teaspoons ground coriander
tablespoons oil for frying
large yellow onion, chopped
large cloves garlic, minced
teaspoons fresh garlic, minced
teaspoon ground coriander
tablespoon harissa (or more depending on heat preference)
cans (15 oz.) garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
cup whole black olives, rinsed and drained
cup whole dried figs, cut in half
Rub the chicken breasts down with the cumin, coriander and some salt and pepper.
Heat the oil in a Dutch oven or large, deep skillet and brown the chicken on both sides. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
Add the onion and cook until soft and translucent, 5-7 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, harissa, honey, and cook for another 3 minutes.
Add all remaining ingredients, stir to combine, and place the chicken breasts on top of the mixture. Bring everything to a light boil, reduce the heat to medium, cover and simmer for 35-40 minutes.
