Ismail's Mom's Chicken and Olive Tagine




A tagine is an absolutely delicious sort of Moroccan stew.
This one was made by Ismail's mother. The base is chicken breast to which all sorts of fresh vegetables like zucchini and potato are added.
Then spices and olives.....yum.
Cooked almost all day, very slowly, on a very low heat.
To be served with flat bread and salad.
This tagine was made in our neighborhood and each tagine is a little different.
For excellent Moroccan recipes go here.

Mmm yammy looks so delicious and I think that is a very healthy food without fat. I accessed the site and I saw very easy to prepare it, and I think I will try this recipe these days. I want to ask you a question: if I made the food in the oven at what temperature can I cook?

Your shots have captured life very naturally. I could not find anything artificial. I must say after Tuscany(Italy) this place is worth living.
