Moroccan Chicken

Try out the tasty healthy eating recipe for Moroccan chicken – if you don’t want to use chicken, you can substitute for some beans or lentils. I find chickpeas work perfectly with the spices here and it great for healthy living…

Remember onions as part of a healthy eating plan as onions contain sulphurous anti-inflammatory and antibacterial compounds that help liver detoxify harmful substances!

Here I’ve removed the chicken from the sauce and served with asparagus.
