Chicken Tagine With Prunes, Apricots & Roasted Almonds

Wednesday, 15 January 2014


Happy Wednesday Lovelies!

I was lucky enough to receive a new Tagine (a shallow earthenware dish with a conical lid) as a Christmas gift & couldn't wait to get cooking with it. Of course, it meant trying out a new recipe as I'd never made a Tagine before (stew in English!). 
So you don't mind being my guinea pigs do you?

The dish originates from North Africa. The smell of exotic spices wafted through my kitchen reminding me of the times I have visited Marrakesh, one of my favourite holiday destinations. What I loved about the Tagine was the pot really held the moisture in the dish, keeping all those exotic flavours locked in.

And boy, those flavours were heavenly! I'll definitely be making this dish again, it would be great for dinner with close friends.
