Recipe For Mint Chicken Tagine

Morocco is the place of my dreams, a country on my bucket list and it has been there for many years. I have various reasons for wanting to visit this country and one of them is to experience the spice markets. Dave and I have a plan and it will be many years before I get to step ashore this country so until then I have to make do with cooking in my tagine. Not all the recipes I create in my tagine are traditionally Moroccan, but they are all slow cooked with love until the meat is perfectly soft. This cooking utensil is Berber in origin and has a base unit that is flat and circular with low sides, and a large dome-shaped lid. The lid is designed to allow the condensation to return to the bottom of the dish. For communal eating, the base can be taken to the table for serving.
