Moroccan Chicken (Slimming World friendly)

This is a super easy tasty dinner, It's a great one to make after work as it's so quick to make. I served it with rice but it would be good with cous cous too. Harissa paste is easily available in most supermarkets usually by the herbs and spices. I only used one tablespoon as I like it spicy but not too spicy but add more if you like it hotter also I used chicken thighs as I prefer them for flavour but feel free to use chicken breasts if you prefer.


Moroccan Chicken


8 chicken thighs (cut into chunks all fat and skin removed)
1 large onion (sliced)
2 peppers (sliced)
250ml chicken stock
1 tbsp harissa paste
1 can chopped tomatoes
2 tbsp tomato puree
1 can chickpeas (drained)
low calorie spray oil


Spray a large frying pan or wok with spray oil and add the chicken. Cook for a few minutes over medium/high heat until starting to brown then add the peppers and onions and keep cooking for another few minutes until the onion starts to soften.

Add the harissa paste and stir well then add the chicken stock, tomatoes and tomato puree. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 20-30 minutes until the sauce has reduced and thickened slightly. Add the chickpeas and cook for a few more minutes until heated through.


Serves 4 at 1/2 syn per portion

  1. Sounds delicious - I make something similar and add soft dried apricots too, but I don't know if they're SW friendly or not !

    1. Nice idea! Soft dried apricots are 3 syns for 25g not bad or you can have 50g for a healthy extra if you wanted to add them :)
