Moroccan Roast Chicken (Djaj Mhammer) Part2

Moroccan Roast Chicken, also known as djaj mhamer, is a classic dish that is served at every Moroccan celebration! This dish has two main components, the golden roasted chicken, and the flavorful onion sauce, called “daghmira.” The chicken is first marinated in aromatic spices, including saffron, ginger, and turmeric before being slowly cooked in the onion sauce. Then, the chicken is removed from the pot, slathered in butter and roasted until the skin is golden brown and crispy. but the inside remains tender and juicy. The leftover onion sauce, is cooked down until it thickens before being served with the chicken. Like many Moroccan chicken dishes, the djaj mhammed is served with olives and preserved lemons, which bring a wonderful note of acidity to the classic dish.
