Traditional Moroccan Chicken Tagine Recipe

Ingredients

2 teaspoons turmeric
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
Rind of one lemon – preserved or fresh
2 KG chicken cut into eight pieces
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 white onion, chopped
1 cup pitted green olives
½ cup water
¼ chopped parsley
Directions
1. In a large bowl, combine all of your spices. Make sure your chicken pieces are dry and add them to the bowl, rubbing each well with the spice mixture. Let your chicken and spice mix sit for one hour in the refrigerator.
2. In a tagine dish or large skillet with heavy bottom, heat the olive oil to medium-high. Salt your chicken pieces lightly and place skin-side down in your pan and fry for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and onion pieces and turn your heat to medium-low, cooking for an additional 15 minutes.
3. Use tongs to turn your chicken pieces over, then add the olives, lemon rind and water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat and then reduce the heat to low and cover. Cook for 30 minutes or until the chicken is tender and cooked through.
4. Top with fresh parsley and taste your tagine, adjusting the salt and pepper seasonings if necessary.
5. Serve with couscous, rice or flat bread.
