About the Dish:
Tagine is a traditional Moroccan dish that is named after the clay cooking pot it is prepared in. It typically consists of a combination of meat, vegetables, and aromatic spices, slow-cooked to perfection. The dish is known for its rich and complex flavors, as well as its tender and juicy meat. The slow cooking process allows the flavors to meld together, resulting in a delicious and aromatic meal.
|Olive oil||2 tablespoons|
|Black pepper||To taste|
- Step 1: In a large tagine or a heavy-bottomed pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for an additional 1 minute.
- Step 2: Season the chicken thighs with salt, black pepper, coriander, cumin, and cinnamon. Add the seasoned chicken to the pot and cook until browned on all sides, about 8 minutes.
- Step 3: Add the saffron, olives, preserved lemons, and the juice of one lemon to the pot. Cover and cook on low heat for 1 hour, or until the chicken is tender and cooked through.
- Step 4: Serve the tagine hot, with steamed couscous or crusty bread on the side. Enjoy!
