Delicious and so easy to make! I cooked this in my crockpot since I don't own a tagine --- yet. I followed the recipe except I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts to cut down on calories and used chicken broth in place of the water because I had some in the fridge that needed to be used. This is a very tasty, comforting dish. I halved the recipe since it is just DH & myself these days, but wish I had made the full recipe to have for later. We will be making it again.
I used a tagine for this recipe. I thought it might be a bit bland with just tumeric and cinnamon, so I added cumin and paprika as well. I also used half a tin of tomatoes (drained). Perhaps because I was using a tagine or because I used le puy lentils, the liquid did not reduce. Next time I make this dish, I will reduce the water (stock) by at least one cup, maybe two.
