Easy Moroccan chicken tagine recipe

Simple one-pots are perfect for the busy cook. This Moroccan chicken tagine recipe is great eaten with couscous for something a bit more filling.

  • 225ml milk
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon , freshly ground if possible
  • 450ml whipping or double cream
  • Heat the oil in a large, wide pan with a lid, add the chicken, then fry quickly until lightly coloured. Add the onion and ginger, then fry for a further 2 mins.
  • Add 150ml water, the saffron, honey and carrots, season, then stir well. Bring to the boil, cover tightly, then simmer for 30 mins until the chicken is tender. Uncover and increase the heat for about 5 mins to reduce the sauce a little. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with lemon wedges for squeezing over.
Tip: chicken breasts

You can make this dish using 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts instead of thighs. Simply cut them in half and reduce the simmering time to 15 mins.
