Fusion Moroccan Chicken Chicken is a savory, spicy chicken dish that will leave you wanting more. Like nothing, you have ever had before. By the way, this Fusion chicken is made with herby Chimichurri sauce plus a mildly spicy Moroccan Chili Sauce. Needless to say, it is full of herby flavor from my Chimichurri Sauce and a tomato-based chili sauce. Consequently, the combination will thrill both your tastebuds and your stomach.
Why the name? Well, this recipe is a combination of my versions of Chimichurri sauce and Moroccan chili sauce in it. Chimichuri originated in Argentina. Initially, I originally called this recipe Chimi Roccan Chicken. However, I don’t think that name would be searched for. I am hoping that with a new name it will gain better recognition. What to do with leftover sauces? I don’t like to waste. Therefore I combined the two to create this recipe.
All in all, I highly suggest making both sauces ahead of time as it will speed up making this recipe. In fact, these sauces can be made up to a week or two in advance.
Fusion Moroccan Chicken Chicken:
As a matter of fact, Chimichuri is a fresh garlic herb sauce used to top meats. It is absolutely delicious on its own or dipping vegetables into. If you have never had Chimichurri I highly recommend it.
My Moroccan Chili sauce is slightly spicy with harissa chili sauce. Which incidentally I have found at my local grocery store. However, if you can’t seem to find it you can order Harissa Chili Paste online.
Needless to say that this dish is slightly spicy as well as garlicky. In all honesty, I am a wimp when it comes to heat and therefore I purchase mild Harissa Chili Paste. However, if you like it spicier simply purchase the Hot Harissa Chili Paste.
