The home of Tasty Food Recipes invites you to try Easy chicken tagine recipe. Enjoy my collection of delicious food recipes and learn how to make Easy chicken tagine.

Simple one-pots are perfect for the busy cook. This chicken tagine is great eaten with cous cous for something a bit more filling

Serves 4
Prep 10 mins
Cook 40 mins
Counts as 1 of 5-a-day


2 tbsp olive oil
8 skinless boneless chicken thighs , halved if large
1 onion , chopped
2 tsp grated fresh root ginger
pinch saffron or tumeric
1 tbsp honey
400g carrots , cut into sticks
small bunch parsley , roughly chopped
lemon wedges, to serve


Heat the oil in a large, wide pan with a lid, add the chicken, then fry quickly until lightly coloured. Add the onion and ginger, then fry for a further 2 mins.
Add 150ml water, the saffron, honey and carrots, season, then stir well. Bring to the boil, cover tightly, then simmer for 30 mins until the chicken is tender. Uncover and increase the heat for about 5 mins to reduce the sauce a little. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with lemon wedges for squeezing over. 


Tip: chicken breasts

You can make this dish using 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts instead of thighs. Simply cut them in half and reduce the simmering time to 15 mins.
