One Pot Moroccan Chicken Recipe by Mandy | Minimax

Serves 4



4 chicken cutlets, skin off

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil


160g natural Greek yoghurt

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp ground cumin

1 tsp ground coriander

1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1/4 tsp ground turmeric

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cracked pepper

Juice of 1 lemon


1 brown onion, diced

3 garlic cloves, minced

80g baby spinach, roughly chopped

185g basmati rice

480ml chicken stock

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1 lemon, sliced, for garnish

Chopped coriander, for garnish

Zest of 1 lemon, for garnish


  • 01

    Place all marinade ingredients in a large bowl and mix to combine. Add chicken thighs and turn each

    piece to cover. Cover and set aside for 10 minutes, or overnight if time permits. 

  • 02

    Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in your GreenPan Sauté Pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and

    remaining marinade and cook for 4-5 minutes. Flip chicken and cook for another 5 minutes, then

    remove from pan and set aside.

  • 03

    Add the onion and garlic and cook for 2 minutes, or until softened. Next, add the baby spinach and

    cook for another minute. Add rice and stir well to coat. Pour in the stock and stir well, then bring to a

    simmer. Return chicken to the pan (and it’s juices) and nestle into the rice. Cover and reduce to a

    gentle simmer. Continue cooking for another 20-25 minutes, or until the stock has been absorbed

    and the rice is fluffy. Remove pan from the heat but keep the lid on for another 5-8 minutes.

  • 04

    Top with the sliced lemon, chopped coriander and lemon zest, then serve.

About the Author

Made By Mandy

I love all things food and will use any excuse to get in the kitchen, from organising endless dinner parties and developing countless recipes. Over the years I have learnt how powerful food is. Not only is it a source of nourishment, but more importantly, it brings everyone together to provide a sense of unity and community. That’s where my love for styling and photography comes in - it allows me to tell a story and give the viewer a moment to think, to react, to feel and to understand all the beauty that food has to offer.
