Moroccan Chicken Stew – With Apricots (YUM!)
This Moroccan Chicken Stew recipe is from our book Always Delicious – and it certainly lives up to the name of the book! We absolutely love the warm and comforting flavors in this stew. For a twist, we’ve added a subtle sweetness with apricots, carrots, and squash. The sweet fruits and vegetables paired with the warming spices make a balanced dish that feels a bit like a hug-in-a-bowl. Try pairing this stew with Cauliflower Couscous, Parsnip Rice, or cooked quinoa/brown rice (if in Phase 2).
