Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 tablespoons marrakesh moroccan paste
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 15 sprigs fresh flat-leaf parsley, plus chopped parsley, for garnish
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon preserved lemon pulp, plus 1 rind preserved lemon, cut into thin strips
  • 1 14 oz can artichoke hearts, drained
  • 2 tablespoons marrakesh spice
  • 2 tablespoons water

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400° F.


In a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter. Slice chicken breasts into tenders about 4 per breast.


Add chicken strips to Marrakesh paste to coat evenly. Once strips are coated, place strips in the Dutch oven to brown; about 1 minute on each side. Add chicken stock to the pan along with onions. Lay parsley sprigs on top of chicken for flavor. Cover and place in the oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove pan from oven and reduce oven temperature to 200° F.


Discard the parsley sprigs. Transfer chicken to an ovenproof dish and return to the oven to keep warm. Bring the reserved sauce in the Dutch oven to a simmer on the stovetop and stir in lemon juice and pulp of preserved lemon. Add artichokes and simmer for about 5 minutes. Once artichokes are soft, turn off the heat and stir in lemon rind.


Remove the chicken from the oven, place on a serving platter and surround with artichoke hearts. Spoon sauce over dish and garnish with chopped parsley.
