Ismail's Mom's Magic Chicken Tagine


IMG_0161.JPG, originally uploaded by schmidwix2.

Recipe:
Chicken breasts
every veggie that's in season
love and attention
magic seasonings
long slow cooking under a conical hat
one could attempt this outside Morocco - Williams Sonoma now has packets of tagine spices -
but much better to go there.............
sigh

darling e,
I had no idea you were still maintaining this blog!!! I thought you had moved over to your New York blog......ah, one foot in both cities, ahem, or was it a tale of two cities?

love to you both.

I would love to go there, specifically for the food. ;-)

Your photo looks good enough to eat!
The chicken looks like 'daube', a casserole with chicken (or beef), veggies, olives and probably a different set of magic spices. It certainly looks yummy.

Are there Moroccan restaurants in New York?

Jennifer said...

Oh yum! I'm beginning to think that blogging can make one fat. ;-)

Elizabeth, the food looks so good! I looks mediterranean to me. I love it!
Thanks for stopping by, I don't understand photoshop, either, but my niece does, she simply tries. She's 16. I can only resize the photos.
Have a nice week!

this is my patch said...

Tagine cooking is always so appetising. x

Sara said...

It's making my mouth water! I've never had this dish, but I sure would love to...and in Morroco! Perhaps a trip to find those tangine spices locally is in order. Nothing is better than slow cooked dishes like this...

Barrie said...

Looks delish!

natural attrill said...

Yum, that looks absolutely delicious!
I have a plain brown tagine pot like that, you have inspired me to cook, I think I'll try some chicken and potatoes and olives.....
P.x

Even the food in Marrakesh is so full of color. I am amazed at a culture that loves primary colors so much, they are everywhere. When did we in the U.S. become such a country of gray and black and brown? We need some color! Thanks for the wonderful photos!
