Moroccan Chicken Meal Prep Bowls

Makes 3-4 servings 


10 Boneless, skinless chicken thighs

1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

2 cups frozen corn 

(cooked according to package directions)

1 ½ cups edamame 

(cooked according to package directions)

2 ½ cups cooked couscous 

(cooked according to package directions)

Moroccan Spice Blend

1 teaspoon of each:




ginger powder



cayenne (optional)

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon chilli powder 


1. To make the spice blend, place all of the spices into a small bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.

2. Pour the olive oil into a large bowl. Add spice blend and mix to combine with the oil.

3. Add chicken thighs to the large bowl and toss until thoroughly coated *see note.

4. Place the chicken thighs into the air fryer.

5. Set the air fryer for 20 minutes at 400°F, flip the chicken thighs half way through.

Confirm safe internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) for chicken has been reached (testing the thickest part) before consuming.

6. Allow chicken to cool 5-6 minutes before slicing.

7. Divide the chicken, corn, edamame and cooked couscous between 3 meal prep containers.


Be sure the chicken is well coated in the spice blend. The generous amount of seasoning will ensure the dramatic flavour stands out in the dish.

Couscous can be easily swapped for quinoa, lentils or rice.

Meals can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days.

To reheat, place glass dish in the microwave, cover with paper towel and cook for 2-2 ½ minutes.

Do you ever think meal prep is not for you because you dislike repeating the same meal? 

Remix this recipe in 2 more ways:

Use the same ingredients in a pita wrap with tzatziki.

Use the Moroccan chicken, edamame & corn to create a cold salad. Just add greens and a lemon vinaigrette.
