Chicken Tagine is a traditional, rich Moroccan stew. It can be made with just about any meat but for today’s purposes, we’re sticking with classic bone-in chicken.

The chicken is marinated in a blend of spices and herbs, including turmeric and saffron, and then slowly cooked with onions until tender and savory, with the meat falling off the bones and the marinade creating a broth full of flavor.

While this dish is traditionally prepared in a Moroccan tagine, hence the name, you can easily make it at home in a pot.


The stew is finished with preserved lemons and green olives which adds a uniquely salty and complex flavor to the dish.

 This chicken tagine recipe is a very simple one-pot meal but you can dress it up in a million different ways. Add apricots, dates, or chickpeas for extra protein.

If you’ve ever wondered what kind of meals you might encounter on a trip to Morocco, this is a great introduction to Moroccan cuisine.
