    justcallmetoni's Note:

    A tagine is a Moroccan clay pot used for long slow cooking or braising of succulent stews most often served with couscous. This is an Americanized version of a typical dish that one can easily prepare at home. I love the sweet and spicy contrast found in many dishes from this region and often add a bit of harissa.

      I found that the cooking and preparation times for this recipe are way out -- it took about twice as long as stated! (Just dicing a squash takes forever; and simmering 'til tender takes at least 15 minutes, covered... but I digress!) Despite this and that, whilst the recipe isn't complicated, there are a lot of ingredients to play with, it was surprisingly tasty and worth the hassle. The honey was somewhat lost and it could have done with a few more currants; but by in large, it was good -- the apple is a great addition. (Oh, by the way, if you don't get canned chickpeas, they need to soak overnight: I didn't realise this, but managed to make them reasonable by microwaving the Hell out of them!) Finally, don't forget the cinnamon -- it's mentioned as an ingredient, but doesn't show in the recipe: I assume it goes in at step 2.

      This is Great comfort food. Has many flavors mainly sweetness which overpowered the spices. I missed the saltiness in this dish from either nuts, green or black olives, preserved lemons would have given it a nice touch. Also some cilantro or parsley would brighten up the dish. Thanks Toni! OK I`m weird I heated this for breakfast with the addition of green olives, almond slices and cilantro. I very Highly recommend to add these to you dish. Loved it. Thanks again Toni.

      I loosly followed the recipe, but it came out sweet, nicely spiced and delicious. I floured and cooked the chicken breasts whole and kept them separate. I made the sauce on its own and thickened with a little cornstarch and water to preserve the color. Then poured the sauce over the chicken at the end.
