The eclectic combination of Saffron, Moroccan Spices, Onions and chicken team together to create a mouthwatering concoction of flavours. To experience this delicious recipe yourself, follow the simple steps below.


  1. Step one

    The first step is simple, gather your ingredients and prepare to begin cooking. If you lay your ingredients on your kitchen countertop you can ensure you have everything needed.
  2. Step two

    Next, take a heavy-bottomed pot, crock pot or dutch oven. This is a one-pan recipe, so put all your ingredients inside. Poke some holes in your chicken with a sharp knife to ensure the spices really seep into the meat.
  3. Step three

    Cook all of these ingredients on medium heat for roughly an hour. Judge it by whether your chicken falls off the bone- if it does, you’re good to go.
  4. Step four

    Once your liquids have been reduced down completely into oils you can then remove your cinnamon sticks and dispose of them.
  5. Step five

    Now, it is time to serve! Plate your Moroccan saffron chicken onto a bed of couscous or rice pilaf and watch your taste buds dance with joy. Enjoy!
