MOROCCAN CHICKEN STIR FRY

Today's recipe follows on some common themes I've seen arise in my recipes lately, fast and easy.  Tonight I got home from Crossfit at 7:45pm and wanted something quick.  I had chicken in the fridge, but was getting sick of plain chicken and veggies (something I often resort to when I'm in a rush) so I decided I'd try to spice things up a bit.  Best Recipes has a great Moroccan chicken stir fry recipe so I just made a few adjustments to make it paleo friendly and it turned out delicious.  Glad I'll have leftovers for lunch tomorrow!
