Chicken Thighs With Sweet Potatoes and Prunes
This boneless chicken thighs recipe proves that you can use everyday ingredients to create a delicious, flavorful dinner. The easy spiced chicken and sweet potato dish takes its cues from Moroccan cuisine. There are cinnamon- and coriander-spiced boneless chicken thighs, a saucy mixture of shallots, dried pitted plums, and sweet potatoes, plus couscous to soak everything up. Boneless, skinless chicken thighs are extra juicy since they are considered “dark meat,” without needing to rely on skin for richness or flavor. Starting the spiced chicken thighs in the pan with a quick sear allows them to get a nice, golden brown crust, and leaves behind flavor to cook the vegetables in. If you have gluten-free eaters in the family, white rice can be substituted for couscous, or even a quinoa for a protein-rich swap.
