Moroccan-inspired Chicken Recipe Recipe

I'm spending some family time in France this month. At the end of this week, I'm going to be cooking for my sister's family while Aria gets to spend some time with her cousins. This is the chicken recipe I'm planning to prepare for our dinner meal. The chicken is flavored with preserved lemons, dried apricots, fennel and harissa. The process is much the same as for my tandoori chicken recipe, but with North African flavors.  There is a large North African community in France, and as a child I enjoyed many similar wonderful dishes. I've learned a lot about the flavors from the region and have savored many spectacular dishes from its culture. 

The dish incorporates lots of sweet flavors, as is common in North African cuisine. I'll serve this on a bed of semolina with a fennel salad. I hope they'll like it!

Coriander Lime Chicken Recipe

Roasting chicken is one of the best ways to showcase the poultry and enhance its flavor. It doesn't require too much skill; really, it’s just about a willingness to get your hands dirty. To ensure a tender and moist result, you’ll need to massage the marinade under and all over the skin of the meat.

The flavorings for the marinade are up to you. All that matters is the inclusion of the tenderizing ingredients to ensure the meat is succulent. Over the years, I've come up with a great combination for a successful roasted chicken, which consists of softened butter or/and olive oil, baking powder, green papaya paste and an acidic ingredient such as lemon, lime (or any citrus) or vinegar. For the remaining ingredients, I chose, garlic, freshly grated ginger, mint, coriander and honey. I also prepared a lime coconut sauce to pair with the chicken. And it was delicious!
