Ras El-Hanout, Moroccan Spiced Chicken

85 mins (prep 10, cooking 75)
15 ingredients
4-8 servings
This recipe appeared in a local food magazine called MIX. It was simple to prepare, but wonderfully different. The spices blend together during cooking to make a wonderfully rich and deep flavor. The dutch oven cooking produces a tender, falling-off-the-bone chicken. This recipe would originally be prepared in an earthenware cooking vessel, called a Tagine, which has a conical lid. I'm sure most of us don't have one lurking in our cupboards, but the results from a Dutch Oven are wonderful. Served with some steamed rice, the little ones were asking for seconds and the adults were asking for thirds.
