I prepared this recipe for the Great Tangine Treasure Hunt hosted in the N.A.M.E. Forum this month. DH and I both enjoyed it tremendously. The flavors were outstanding. Instead of fresh tomatoes I used a can of diced. I doubled the 'spices' and added some cayenne to it...then sprinkled it on the veggies as well as the chicken!! Perfect Sunday feast!
