For a creative chicken salad, get inspiration from Morocco


- Advertisment -

For a creative chicken salad, we were inspired by the flavors of Morocco: apricots, lemon and warm spices.

To give our dressing complex flavor, we reached for garam masala, a traditional spice blend of coriander, cumin, ginger, cinnamon, and black pepper. We also added a little more coriander, honey, and smoked paprika for depth.

Blooming the spices in the microwave deepened their flavors for an even bolder dressing. Chickpeas further echoed the Moroccan theme and lent heartiness, and crisp romaine combined with slightly bitter watercress made the perfect bed of greens for our toppings. Reserving a bit of the dressing to drizzle on just before serving made the flavors pop.


Servings: 4-6

Start to finish: 1 hour

1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed

Salt and pepper

3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon garam masala

1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

Pinch smoked paprika

1/4 cup lemon juice (2 lemons)

1 tablespoon honey

1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed

3/4 cup dried apricots, chopped coarse
