1/1 Photo of Moroccan Chicken Tagine
I have adapted the best of three other moroccan chicken recipes (primarily the Million Dollar Chicken) to produce this one. The main difference is it uses more authentic ingredients like harissa paste, onions and chick peas. This is now one of my favourite dishes.
