Another delicious tagine recipe that I just had to post. Serve with Authentic Moroccan Bread Note: I changed the amount of honey after reading the reviews.

Delicious! We had some guests drop by unexpectedly for dinner that had never tried Moroccan food before, and they also loved it. I used the full amount of honey and we felt that there was just the right amount of sweetness. We made this using your Recipe #262189. I could not taste the saffron at all so I may leave it out next time. I did not need to add any additional water at the honey stage because the sauce was pretty thin and there was plenty of liquid. Thanks for sharing! Made for Spring 2010 PAC.

  1. Heat the olive oil over medium low heat in a large tagine. Heat the onion & garlic for several minutes then add the spices & cook until fragrant.
  2. Next stir in the tomatoes & lemon juice. Sprinkle the chicken pieces with salt & pepper then place in the sauce. Cover the tagine & cook on low heat for 1 hour.
  3. Uncover the tagine & carefully stir in the honey & 1/2 cup of water. Recover & continue to cook for additional 30-45 minutes, until the chicken is tender.
  4. Sprinkle the almonds & sesame seeds on top of the chicken & serve hot with Moroccan bread.
