Baked Moroccan Chicken


Make a weeknight dinner extra-special without any extra work. The preparation for this flavor-packed chicken dish couldn’t be any easier. The Moroccan spices dress the tender chicken to perfection.

The recipe calls for Preserved Meyer Lemon, which you can learn to make here. The flavor of the dish really benefits from the bold, lemony taste of preserved lemon. If you don’t have any, you can use a vegetable peeler to remove strips of lemon peel from a whole lemon, being careful to avoid the white pith underneath.
