      This dish was a hit for us. 6 stars. I used chicken tenders added in just a bit of butter and flour and sauted with the spices before adding the water. I made everything in a dutch oven and probably more thand doubled the seasonings as I just mentally measure and it was a beautiful sauce. I aslo added the whole preserved lemon chopped up and added fresh garlic,chickpeas and potato to make it a one dish meal. Thanks this recipe goes into my favs. Made for Ramadan Tag 09.

      WoW!!! I was so impressed at how good and authentic this tasted. I did use fresh ginger and fresh garlic. I didn't have lemon preserves so i used the juice of half a lemon and some lemon zest. This really was a spectacular dish. Even my two year old loved it. Thank you for posting such a wonderful recipe. I really really loved this one. Will be making again and again.

      Whoopie! This is fabulous! I successfully made this in a Dutch oven as I don't have a tagine. Everybody loved it! I did cook it only 1 hour on medium low. Excellent flavor!! I meant to take a photo because it's a beautiful dish but I remembered too late. :o Made for NA*ME Tag - thank you, Nasseh!
