Moroccan Chicken Stew

I have been obsessed with making soups and stews lately. It’s actually been pretty chilly these past couple of weeks and I’m soaking every bit of this wonderful weather right up. I made this Moroccan Chicken Stew a few weeks ago and instantly fell in love with the flavors!

First, it’s full of cinnamon, paprika, and cumin spices. I love the balance between the cinnamon and cumin. The stew is also really hearty with chicken, carrots, diced tomatoes, and the chickpeas. For a little something extra, I also added the STAR Fine Foods Lemon Stuffed Olives. I love the lemony undertones in these olives and the flavor they added to the stew.

This light and delicious moroccan-style stew is made with tender chicken, warm spices like cumin and cinnamon, carrots, chickpeas, and green olives!


  • 1 tablespoon STAR Fine Foods Olive Oil
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 pound boneless chicken breast, trimmed and diced into 1-inch pieces
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes (plus liquid)
  • 3/4 cup STAR Fine Foods Lemon Stuffed Green Olives


  1. In a large pot or dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and saute for about 3 minutes. Add the chicken breast and season with salt and pepper. Cook the chicken until browned, about 4-5 minutes. Then sprinkle in the flour, cumin, paprika, and the cinnamon. Stir to coat the chicken with the flour mixture.
  2. Pour in the chicken broth, chickpeas, diced tomatoes, and the green olives. Lower the heat to low, stir, and cover. Let the stew simmer for about 1 1/2-2 hours for best flavor. Feel free to adjust the seasonings to reach desired taste as the stew cooks.
