Real Moroccan Chicken

“This is my husband's favorite dish. It reminds him of home (He is from Morocco). Every person I share this with always begs for more. Serve it with only a loaf of crusty french bread. It is tradition to serve this on a large dish in the middle of table and everyone use their pieces of bread as utensils.”
