Moroccan stewed chicken and a little quinoa

I tried a new recipe tonight that I found in Women's Health Magazine... SO GOOD!!! I get nervous every time I try new recipes, and I find something I would do differently almost every time, but I followed this recipe pretty much to a T and it was great!

- Chicken Breasts- I used 3 large ones and cut them in half
- 1 cup no salt added chicken broth
- 1 can garbanzo beans, no salt added
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 3 zucchini's chopped
- 1 can no salt added diced tomato
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- onion powder
- garlic powder
- pepper to taste

1. Place olive oil in a large pan with chicken breasts- sprinkle pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder
2. Cook chicken until it begins to brown, then add in zucchini. Continue cooking on medium heat until chicken is cooked almost all the way through.
3. Add in remainder of ingredients (drained garbanzo, don't drain tomato)
4. Continue cooking on low heat for 10-15 more minutes
I added brown rice and quinoa on the side, and actually really liked the way it tasted mixed in.
This was B's portion (lots of starch :) ) 
This had such great flavor, so different from anything I've made before!


  1. That looks really good and I have everything on hand...except the chicken but that's an easy fix.

    I am looking for more ideas to use up some of the spices I have in the house.

  2. This was really great! One of my favs. My husband and son like it and they are not into eating clean. I am trying to show them eating clean can be yummy and this recipe worked! Thanks
