Moroccan Chicken Tagine

What can I tell you about this dish that you might not already know?

You probably know that ‘Tagine’ is the name of the special cooking pot, but you may not know that the word ‘tagine’ also refers to the many succulent dishes which are slow-cooked inside it. Usually, a tagine dish is a rich stew – either of meat, chicken, or fish, and generally includes vegetables or fruit. Vegetables can also be cooked alone in the tagine.

In Morocco, this recipe is known as Tagine Zitoune, which means ‘with olives’.

Sometimes it is spelled ‘tajine’.

This Moroccan Chicken Tagine recipe quite simply speaks for itself, its like having the sun shining on your plate, and it’s full of flavour, not forgetting the colour. Some people add carrots to it and chop the chicken into pieces, but traditionally it is with a whole chicken. I think this looks much nicer and more appetizing. For this reason, we’re going to use a normal large pan or casserole dish for this recipe.

Morocco is a beautiful place, to me it’s a romantic country and it’s also known as the land of the spices.You can you take any three local spices and make a beautiful dish. I love visiting my friend (who lives here in the UK) and every time I go and see her, she makes me this tagine recipe and together we enjoy making round flat bread, with natural yogurt and we always end up chatting until the early hours!

Hospitality is very important in some countries, in Morocco (and a lot of the Mediterranean)  this is certainly true, and hopefully some of you have had the pleasure of going to a restaurant and enjoying a superb meal there, but eating at someone’s house with all their hospitality is something else. I do hope you will make this dish and feel you are under the Moroccan sun! Now let’s see how easy this is to make.
