Recipe: Moroccan Chicken Salad

Take your chicken salad to a whole other (healthy) level by incorporating new flavors, such as in this aromatic Moroccan Chicken Salad recipe. Leftover chicken and rice come together in only 10 minutes in this main dish salad.

Olives are an integral part of Moroccan cuisine and are a perfect addition where they add a touch of salt and a nice earthy flavor. The Kalamata olives used here are rich and intensely fruity, and stand up well next to the bold flavor combination of orange juice, lemon juice, mint, cilantro and cinnamon. The touch of cayenne pepper takes this lunchtime staple to a whole other level.




Combine rice, chicken, carrots, scallions and olives in a large bowl. Whisk together or broth, orange juice, lemon juice, mint, cilantro, oil, cinnamon, cayenne and salt and pepper to taste in another bowl. Toss dressing with rice mixture.
