Absolutely delicious! My 2 year old ate it all up and I loved it. Had it with couscous and spinach.
This was good, and quick and easy (I’ve also made the slow cooker version). But, to me, neither is as good as Elise’s original stovetop version — https://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/moroccan_chicken_with_lemon_and_olives/ . I don’t have a tagine — works just fine in a deep saute pan. Will try the ras el hanout next time I make it. Takes a little longer, but worth the time. However, I loved the pot-in-pot idea. Great time (and pan) saver!
Amazing … switched things up a little, used bone-in chicken thighs and browned on each side to make the skin crispy & add to the overall richness. Increased chicken broth by 1/2 cup, served with Jasmine rice & Naan. Our teen/tween kids devoured it, our 13 year old son declared it the perfect balance of sweet/savory/salty/tart and asked I put it on our monthly meal rotation. Bonus is the Ras el Hanout leaves a delicious smell of cinnamon & cloves hours after dinner is done!
I wish I was eating this for lunch today – it looks so healthy and delicious!
This was very flavorful. I have a big jar of Ras el hanout, and I used 2 Tbps. (next time I might use a bit less as it was a bit overpowering). The only changes I made was to saute the chicken to get fond in the pot. I was happy to find a use for the preserved lemons that I had made. Then I sauteed the onions, garlic and then the spices. I added the chicken back in. I am not a fan of olives, unfortunately, so I added dried apricots and prunes instead. I served it over couscous and loved it! So fast and easy.
I was disappointed, the lemon made the dish very bitter. I had to add some sweet peppers and a little sugar to make eatable.
Amazing taste!But I’ll stick to my regular pot and longer cooking next time, because 15 minutes isn’t enough for the chicken to get infused with all the spices, and the whole dish tastes a bit imbalanced. After turning off the pressure and tasting, I let it simmer for another 20-30 minutes and it tasted much better.
I plan on making this on the weekend for my dinner party.
I made this today as I have a batch of Moroccan Preserved Lemons in the pantry that I made at Christmas that I am always looking for ways to use. I was able to find Ras el hanout at my local grocery store.
This was delicious, and with the Pot in Pot Rice as well it was an easy clean up.
