Foodie Friday: Tagine

I recently sampled a chicken tagine dish made by a friend who has been experimenting with this cooking style. Tagine, also sometimes tajine or tagin, is a North African dish named after the special cooking pot pictured above. Our favorite Wikipedia has some informtaion about tagine. I’m not sure of the exact recipe used, but this chicken with apricots from epicurious is similar. There are many tagine recipes online.  The flavors of this dish were sweet and spicy and the bright yellow color came from saffron. Served over couscous, it was delicious.

My wimpy palate avoided the chili paste that was used in the sauce, but I loved this beautiful little can!
