Tajine de poulet

Tajine de poulet is a classic Moroccan dish, made with chicken, potatoes, olives, and spices simmered in a flavorful tomato sauce. Serve it over couscous or rice for a complete meal.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3 large potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup green olives, pitted and halved

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic, ginger, cumin, turmeric, paprika and cayenne pepper; season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the potatoes and cook for another 5 minutes.

Add the chicken thighs to the skillet and cook until lightly browned on both sides. Pour in the diced tomatoes and chicken stock; bring to a simmer. Cover partially with a lid and continue to simmer until the potatoes are tender and the chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes.

Stir in the olives before serving. Serve over couscous or rice.
