    Sackville's Note:

    An amazing Moroccan cook named Naima taught me to make this dish. If you ever have the chance to buy a tagine (a clay cooking pot) it is worth it just to make this dish. Serve the finished meal boiling hot and eat it the traditional way -- straight from the clay tagine. By the way, I have adjusted this recipe to use chicken breasts (which are more common in the West) but in Morocco you would more likely get a cut such as a thigh. Any piece of chicken will work just fine.

      Excellent! I was out of carrots, so I used more potatoes. Also, I added a lot of spice - turmeric, garam masala, and cumin. I cooked this in a clay Apple Baker and it was fantastic. Thanks for the great recipe!

      Hi, thank you so much for this recipe. Just back from Morocco where I bought a tagine and tried this recipe for the first time. It was so easy to follow and my husband is well impressed. Thank you very much :)

      This was my first Tagine use recipe. This was so impressive to my family that it has been requested on several occasions. I have since made a Tagine once a week since making this dish.

      Pictures Included.
