This recipe is the ultimate family recipe. No more Sunday roast chicken, this time we’re focusing on another equally delicious preparation: chicken tagine. And don’t worry, there’s really nothing complicated. Here’s how to do it.
For 4 people, you will need:
- 4 chicken thighs
- 1 citron confit
- 6 sprigs of fresh coriander
- 60 g green olives
- 400 ml tomato coulis
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 yellow onions
- 2 tablespoons of ras-el-hanout
- 2 tablespoons of turmeric
- 1 kg of potatoes
- 60 g of raisins
- olive oil
- Chop the coriander with the stems and the preserved lemon. In a salad bowl, add the chicken with a drizzle of olive oil, raz el-hanout, turmeric, coriander, candied lemon, and pepper. Leave to marinate in the fridge for 10 minutes.
- Peel the onion then slice it.
- Peel and chop the garlic. Wash the potatoes well and cut them into quarters.
- Heat a frying pan or casserole dish over medium heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Sweat the onion and garlic for 1 minute, stirring.
- Then let the chicken brown for 2 minutes per side and season with pepper.
- Then, add water to cover the contents of the pan and simmer for 10 minutes.
- Then add the potatoes and incorporate the tomato pulp, raisins and green olives.
- Add salt and pepper and continue cooking for 30 minutes.
- Check the vegetables for cooking, they should be very tender. If the sauce is too liquid for your taste, dilute a little starch or flour in cold water and pour it into the preparation.
- Bring to a boil, stirring to thicken. Serve hot!
