Moroccan Chicken

This chicken recipe is quick and tastes very different from most things I make.  I like the combination of flavors because the prunes make it sweet, but not too sweet. It is a great meal to use up leftover chicken. My husband doesn’t like couscous, so I serve it over rice, even though couscous would be more Moroccan.
