Description

Adapted from a recipe by Jamie Oliver, this Chicken Tagine with Lemon and Olives is full of all the flavors of North African cuisine. Seasoned with Ras el hanout, the chicken is browned and then simmered alongside garlic and scallion for maximum savory flavor. Lemon, olives, and port wine add their own unique flavor to this tasty chicken stew. Serve over a bed of fluffy couscous and garnish with fresh coriander. Allow yourself a full hour to let the chicken cook in order to ensure the full release of flavors.
