Low Syn Moroccan Chicken Casserole

This Moroccan Chicken Casserole is a family favorite and is packed with flavor. All cooked in one pan, don’t just like the food you like.

For casseroles, I prefer using chicken thighs because I find the meat is really moist and absorbs more flavor, than chicken breast.
