The dates and squash give this dish a lovely savoury/sweet flavour, a Moroccan sweet and sour

Serves 4
Ready in 1½ hours


8 chicken thighs , on the bone, skin on
1 small butternut squash , peeled and cut into chunks
1 red onion , cut into wedges
fresh chicken stock , cube or concentrate, made up to 300ml
400g tin cherry tomatoes
1 cinnamon stick
8 Medjool dates , halved
coriander leaves from a large bunch


1 small red onion , roughly chopped
2 garlic cloves , roughly chopped
thumb sized piece root ginger , roughly chopped
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp mild chilli powder
coriander roots, from a large bunch
1 lemon , zested and juiced
olive oil


Heat the oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Put all the spice paste ingredients in a small food processor with 2 tbsp olive oil and whizz to a paste.

Brown the chicken thighs all over in a tagine or large, wide pan. Scoop out then add the spice paste and cook for a few minutes until fragrant. Add the squash, onion, stock, tomatoes and cinnamon and stir. Sit the chicken on top (push down a bit into the sauce). Cook uncovered in the oven for 1 hour - the chicken should be browned and cooked and the sauce reduced. Add the dates for the last 20 minutes of cooking. Scatter with coriander and serve with buttered couscous.
