This recipe is good even without the chicken. I use my pressure cooker to cut down on the cook time. If you are using a regular pot the time should be doubled.


  1. Place all the ingredients into the pressure cooker or regular pot.
  2. Cook for 8 minutes after the pressure cooker begins to hiss. Release the pressure, open the lid & stir. Add more water if needed then cover. Cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  3. Note: When using a regular pot the cook time should be around 25 minutes.
  4. In Morocco, this tagine is served with thick bread to scoop up the lentils & chicken.
