Moroccan Chicken and Vegetables

Moroccan Chicken and Vegetables

Posted 2013-10-26 by elysefollow
This is a rustic dish that is full of flavour. I was inspired for this one after watching Nigella make a tagine. I didn't have the right ingredients so I just chucked in what I had in my cupboard and this is what came out. My fiance loved it so I have kept cooking it!

You can also make this a vegetarian dish by omitting the chicken and adding eggplant and zucchini instead.

Cooking Time: 10 minutes on the stove 45 minutes in the oven
