Another tagine, without the tagine.

Tagine is a Moroccan recipe, cooked in a specially shaped vessel called a tagine.

A previous post talked about cooking tagine, without a tagine, using a cast iron pot. Here's another recipe:

This recipe is for chicken, but you can use shrimp or any meat you want.

Cut chicken breast into strips. Heat olive oil in a cast iron pot. Brown chicken, along with chopped onions and minced garlic.

Add 1 cup chicken broth; thicken with flour.

Add honey, turmeric, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, paprika, ginger.

Add a can of tomatoes, a can of chickpeas, dried apricots, and fresh cilantro.

Stir everything together, reduce heat, cover, simmer for a couple of hours.

Tagine recipes are very easy because they are "one pot" meals.

You can make up your own with any combination of meat, onions, garlic, cilantro, and dried fruit, plus the spices: cumin, coriander, turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, paprika, allspice, nutmeg.

Serve with white rice.
