Chicken Tajine with preserved lemon is known to be Morocco’s second most popular dish after couscous and considered to be the national dish. Tajine is a pot which is made from heavy clay that has been glazed. The shape of the pot is designed to promote the return of all condensate to the bottom. The base of the pot is flat and circular with low sides, and the lid is a shape of a large dome. This recipe was shown on SBS's Food Safari by chef's Hassan M'Souli. I served it with Savoury Couscous. Preparation time does not included overnight marinating time.
