Moroccan Spiced Chicken

I found this recipe on the Simply Recipes blog. DH loves cilantro so I thought it might be good to try. As I knew he would, he loved it!


Moroccan Spiced Chicken
from Simply Recipes blog
  • plain yogurt
  • fresh cilantro chopped
  • olive oil
  • garlic
  • cumin
  • paprika
  • salt
  • pepper
  • chicken breasts
Mix the ingredient in a bowl. Add chicken and marinade for several hours.

The Simply Recipes blog has measurements. I just added stuff. It really was good and the children didn't complain about it being too spicy.

I also served rice and broccoli. I did nothing fancy except steam it on the stove for 8 minutes after it boils. I think it is the perfect texture. I can't bring myself to microwave it, too rubbery. I realized after I put on the broccoli and looked out the window at DH putting the chicken on the grill that I hadn't started the rice. I didn't have 20 minutes for rice.

I remembered reading about boiling rice. There was my chance to try it. I didn't read the directions thoroughly enough because it says to undercook the rice a little and then steam it to finish it off. The rice was a little gummysticky. The kids loved it. A said she could eat my sticky rice every meal for a year. That's high praise from my 8 year old.
