      Fantastic recipe. This was absolutely delicious, lowfat and easy. Like the previous reviewer, I opted for more broth--about 1/2 cup--and I was happy I did so because it was so delicious. The light lemony flavor was delicious and not overpowering. A keeper!

      I loved this flavor! It was my first tagine & it was so easy. It seemed like 1/4 cup of broth was not enough & in the end the meat was a little dry. Next time I'll add just a bit more broth. I only had green olives stuffed with jalapenos, so I cut out the peppers to bring down the heat for DS & DH. It was still a little spicy for them but I'll be making this again for sure. Thanks for posting chelseas! Made for tagine treasure hunt 2008.

      Delicious! Easy. A perfect company recipe because there's minimal fussing at the end. I agree with the previous reviews...1/2 cup of broth. So flavorful and lemony. For the olives I used a jar of Trader Joe's Lucques Olives. Those are my favorite olives ever and unbelievably, the flavor of them improved in the cooking! I tried to pit one and gave up and prepared with pits intact. Wasn't annoying to eat at all.
