    Chermoula

    Remaining Ingredients

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine all the ingredients for the chermoula in a bowl then pour over the chicken pieces & giblets. Rub in well and leave to marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hours (over night is better).
    2. 2
      Place the chicken pieces, giblets, & chermoula into a large tagine (or stove-top & oven-proof casserole). Add the water & turmeric, cover then simmer for 1 hour over medium-low heat, stirring halfway through. Transfer the chicken, giblets, & sauce to a large bowl & remove any loose bones.
    3. 3
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees then mix the cinnamon & sugar together to be used later.
    4. 4
      Pour 2 small ladles of juice from the bowl into the tagine (or oven-proof casserole dish). Cover the bottom of the dish with 3 pastry leaves then sprinkle with 1/2 tsp of the cinnamon mixture. Layer with 2 more pastry leaves, 1 ladle of juice, and 1/2 tsp of cinnamon mixture.
    5. 5
      Arrange the chicken pieces on top of the pastries then cover with another 2 leaves. Moisten with 2 more small ladles of juice then pat the pastry down around the chicken pieces with a wooden spoon.
    6. 6
      Sprinkle another 1/2 tsp of cinnamon mixture on that layer & cover with the remaining 3 sheets. Pat down as above, pour the remaining juice over the dish & sprinkle on the last of the cinnamon mixture.
    7. 7
      Cook in the oven for 20 minutes, until the chicken is tender, then serve hot from the oven.
