Moroccan Chicken Marinade

To Serve

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400° F 

  2. Mix the olive oil, Ras El Hanout, garlic, salt, pepper, and lemon juice together and add the chicken and marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes to 1 hour. 

  3. Line a half sheet pan with parchment (note 1)

  4. Toss the chopped vegetables in a little olive oil, salt, and pepper so that they are evenly coated in the oil and set aside.

  5. Place the marinated chicken onto the lined sheet pan and bake for 25 minutes, then remove from the oven and add the vegetables and cook for a further 15 - 20 minutes, or until chicken is fully cooked.

Recipe Notes

  1. 8g net carbs per serving which includes two pieces of chicken and 1/4th of the vegetables. 
  2. I use parchment for easy clean up, do not use foil as the vegetables will stick to it.
  3. nutrition calculations do not include the optional toppings of almonds, yoghurt, or cilantro.
