Moroccan Chicken & Tomato Stew

This Moroccan chicken stew is inspired by a traditional tagine, a dish which takes its name from the pottery vessel it's made in (a skillet works here). Serve with a side of roasted vegetables and whole-wheat couscous, if desired.

4 servings


  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon Moroccan Spice Blend (see Associated Recipes)

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 2-inch pieces

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 (15 ounce) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper


  1. Whisk flour and spice blend in a medium bowl. Add chicken and toss to coat. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning as needed, until browned on all sides, 3 to 5 minutes.

  2. Add tomatoes, salt, pepper, and any leftover flour mixture to the pan, stirring to scrape up any browned bits. Bring to a boil, stirring. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until the chicken is cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes. Serve warm.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
