Skillet Chicken Chermoula


Chermoula is an easy and flavorful marinade originating in North Africa that can be used for chicken, fish, or even as a dip. Growing up, my parents always made their own marinades using tomatoes, onions, peppers, garlic, and herbs. Colorful, simple, and bold, this may just become your new favorite go-to dish, like it is for me.

Prep Time
25 minutes

Total Time
25 minutes


Chermoula Marinade:

1 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped

1 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped

1 orange, zested and juiced

1 lemon, zested and juiced

1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, with juice

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 medium red onion, diced

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon smoked paprika

½ -1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, to taste

1 tablespoon cumin

1 teaspoon black pepper


2 tablespoons olive oil

6 (6 ounce each) chicken thighs, raw, skin-on, bone-in, trimmed of excess fat

1. In a mixing bowl, combine cilantro, parsley, orange and lemon zest, and juice, tomatoes, garlic, red onion, red wine vinegar, 1 tablespoon oil, paprika, cayenne pepper, cumin, and pepper. 2. Rub half of the marinade onto chicken thighs (reserving the rest). For deeper flavor, allow to marinate for 1 hour before cooking. 3. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in skillet on medium high heat. Add chicken thighs, discarding used marinade. Allow to cook for 6 minutes, turn to other side, and cook for 6 more minutes, or until the internal temperature is 165°F. 4. Remove from heat and top with remaining chermoula sauce. Serve immediately.


Zest orange and lemon using a grater to remove just the thin orange and yellow layer of the fruit. Juice by cutting fruit in half and squeezing by hand or using a juicing tool. Remove skin from chicken to lower saturated fat.
