Spiced vegetable pilaf with cauliflower, ginger and garam masala simplyrecipes I’ve recently been cooking my way through some of the older recipes on Simply Recipes and came across this gem—Moroccan spiced grilled chicken breasts. It’s a winner! Boneless skinless chicken breasts are marinated in yogurt mixed with a Moroccan spice mix of cumin, paprika, and cinnamon, and then simply grilled. The yogurt helps tenderize the breasts and the marinade brings life to otherwise boring boneless skinless chicken. What I love about this recipe is that with just the barest of preparation, you can have a delicious meal within minutes. Just put the chicken in the marinade before leaving for work in the morning, come home, heat the grill, chicken is done in less than 10 minutes. The recipe is one we adapted from a recipe in the Sacramento Bee years ago.
