One Pot Moroccan Chicken with California Cling Peaches
by: Whitney Bond
I love recipes that are bursting with flavor, which is why I really love this Gluten Free One Pot Moroccan Chicken recipe!
California cling peaches, tomatoes, olives and lots of delicious spices pack this dish with deliciousness!
For this recipe, I partnered up with the California Cling Peach Board to recreate one of their delicious recipes featuring California Cling Peaches.
Did you know that it’s National Nutrition Month and that canned California Cling Peaches are just as nutritious as fresh? Crazy, right?! According to an Oregon State University study, the canning process actually increases key nutrients and locks in their fresh-picked flavor. Grown on small family farms, these peaches are hand-picked at the peak of ripeness and packed just miles away from the orchard.
You can check out several videos on the California Cling Peach website to learn all about the nutrition packed canned peaches!
