Moroccan Stuffed Chicken


This Moroccan Stuffed Chicken transports me right back to Marrakech where I first tasted stuffed chicken many years ago. My memory of that meal was so clear even though it was so long ago. None of the Moroccan stuffed chicken recipes I’ve tried since have come close. Until this one!

This stuffed Moroccan chicken is a delicious yet extremely simple dish to make. The sweet and delicious stuffing is made from couscous, apricots, pine nuts and parsley and flavored with a North African spice mix known as Ras el Hanout. Once baked in the oven, the result is a delicious, chicken dish which you will adore!

To make Moroccan Stuffed Chicken, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Moroccan Stuffed Chicken


Heat the oven


Preheat the oven to 375 °F.


Prepare couscous


Place ¼ cup of couscous and 1 teaspoon of Ras el Hanout in a small heatproof bowl. Pour ¼ cup of hot water over the couscous. Cover and set to one side for around five minutes.


Add apricots, pine nuts and parsley


Fluff up the couscous grains using a fork. Mix in 8 chopped apricots, 2 tablespoons of pine nuts and a small chopped bunch of flat-leaf parsley.


Prepare the chicken breasts


Slice into each chicken breast using a sharp paring knife to make a pocket.


Stuff the breasts


Divide the couscous filling between each chicken breast.




Arrange the chicken breasts in a baking pan. Brush each chicken breast with ½ a tablespoon of oil and roast in the oven for about 20 minutes until the meat is cooked through.



Serve with a crisp green salad and some roasted baby potatoes.

It was a bit too spicy for me but I still enjoyed the chicken for sure though I'll have to stick the the cajun stuffed chicken.

I don't have a clue where to buy Ras el Hanout spice mix so I ended up making my own spices..

Dodged the parsley cause the taste can be overbaring.
