Prep time


Cooking time



This is my version on a Moroccan chicken tagine. People may say that you need to have couscous to accompany the dish, but I do not like couscous, so decided to have white rice instead.


  • 375 grams chicken pieces, diced

  • 1 400g tin diced tomatoes

  • 1 400g tin chickpeas, drained

  • 1 medium carrot, diced small

  • 1 Hart and soul recipe base Moroccan tagine

  • 1 medium potato, diced small

  • 40 mls water

  • 12 whole dried apricots

  • 40 grams raisins, (optional)

  • 1 Lebanese cucumber, cut into chunks

  • 1 medium tomato, cut into chunks

  • Couscous, cooked to packet directions


  • In a large frypan heat 1 tablespoon of oil over a medium heat. Add chicken pieces and fry until chicken if golden brown.
  • Add your Moroccan spices, shop brought or home made. Stir for 1-2 minutes of until fragrant.
  • Add diced tomatoes, chickpeas, carrot, potato and apricots to the pan and stir well.
  • Turn the heat down to low and simmer for 30 minutes , or until the chicken pieces are cooked and the vegetables are tender.
  • Remove from the heat, stir in the raisins (optional)
  • Serve with couscous, but I had none so used rice.
