    I clicked onto this recipe expecting instructions to use with my tagine pot..but it says dutch oven. I am confused...

    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.

    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.
