I am always looking for new easy Arabic recipes for my family and chicken is always the protein of choice in our house. Truthfully I think my kids have gotten a bit tired of Moroccan food and so branching out is a must.
We are big fans of food from the rest of the region and the further Middle East. While I was making a list of foods we loved I came up with these Arabic chicken recipes that we think you’ll like too.
I tried to choose recipes that represent multiple countries across North Africa and the Middle East. I’ve left off Turkish and Persian dishes because…they’re not Arabic countries or cultures, even though it’s all lumped together often times.
These 10 easy Middle Eastern chicken recipes are going to change up your chicken game!
There’s a myth that all Middle Eastern recipes are time consuming and difficult to make but this isn’t true. Check out this post of easy middle eastern recipes where I have 12 awesome recipes that take 45 minutes or less.
