Chicken tagine

Recipe Wednesday: Slow Cooked Chicken Tagine

It’s so great how I look forward to Wednesdays – it is mid-week (and countdown to TGIF… Yay!!), it’s when the madness of the beginning of the week starts to slow down. What’s not to love. This week we’re cooking for our Recipe Wednesday: Slow Cooked Chicken Tagine, popular in the city of Rabat, capital of Morocco. Aside from this dish, Rabat is known for its Hassan Tower, the Kasbah of the Udayas and the Mawazine cultural festival. If you are into historical adventures, Rabat is the place to visit. To see more of this fantastic city, click here.

The recipe for today – slow cooked chicken tagine is a given seeing that we are in Morocco, home of tagines. I have always found tagines a fascinating work of art of the Berber people.

If you’re ready to whet your taste buds like I am, whip out your utensils and let’s get cooking!
