Ras El Hanout is a Moroccan classic spice blend with a curry-like flavour which I found at "Herbie's Spices." This is a great dish to make for guests because the fragrance of the chicken as its cooking permeates the whole house and smells amazing. Serve it with rice or couscous.

I couldn't believe I found this recipe here. A friend had given me a sample pack of Herbie's Spices which I'd totally forgotten about so I made this dish. Quick, easy and smells amazing just like it says. It went well with the Spinach Leek and Bean Soup... a bit of a couscous theme I think! - 06 Oct 2008
