Tonight's chili gets its warming character from Moroccan go-to ingredients. A blend of heady spices—including classics like ras el hanout and dried orange peel—lends incredible depth to the quick-cooking chili. Dried currants add delightful pops of sweetness, while sautéed chicken and chickpeas make for hearty winter eating. We’re serving each bowl with crunchy oven-toasted pita chips on the side for dipping.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and medium dice the sweet potato. Peel and small dice the onion. Peel and roughly chop the garlic. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Cut the pita into 6 equal-sized wedges.
