  1. Hi. Dying to make this. Can’t get those type of canned tomatoes. What could I use instead?
    Also, what is the ‘cream’ you used on top when serving?
    Thank you

  2. What would make a good side dish with this Morrocan Chicken? Are those torn mint leaves on top?
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Robin! I’d go for a simple sautéed zucchini or spinach on the side with a little olive oil and garlic. I garnished with some chopped cilantro, but mint would be good too!
