The Recipe:

Get Sweet With a Spicy Moroccan Chicken

By:  Ari  Bendersky  Abe's Market Contributor  October 10th, 2013

If you can handle the heat, then get in the kitchen. This Moroccan chicken dish* uses a few seasonings from Simply Organic, like cinnamon, cumin and crushed red peppers. So if you or your family loves an exotic dish with other ingredients like raisins and honey to add some sweet to the heat, this one can't be beat. (Sorry, couldn't help it.) Speaking of sweet heat, grab a jar of Mina Harissa, traditional red and green Moroccan sauce that, when drizzled over top and mixed in, can add a delicious kick to this dish.
