Chicken Tagine (GF DF)
As with the most popular Moroccan Tagine dishes, this one blends savoury with a touch of sweet.
Chicken is slowly cooked in a gentle spice-infused sauce, rich with tomato, apricots, dates, chickpeas and tagine spices until it is literally, fall-apart soft and tender (which you can see in the photo).
Serve with couscous (cooked with stock not water) for an authentic Moroccan experience - also goes well with rice, or your vegetables of choice.
The photo above shows the Tagine served with lightly steamed green beans and our own Creamy Potato Mash - with a little extra butter added :-)
