I am an enormous fan of Canadian chef and author Bonnie Stern. I have the stained cookbooks to prove it! She is mindful of health when it comes to creating recipes, and she always turns an eye towards heart health which I find extremely appealing. Her recipes are tasty and easy to prepare as well. This one, for Moroccan Chicken, is a huge favorite of ours. I like to serve it around the High Holidays, or for a Shabbat dinner because it is flavorful and sweet.Click to print
