Rfissa (Moroccan Chicken With Lentils)

90 mins (prep 30, cooking 60)
20 ingredients
6-8 servings
This dish is made on special occasions in Morocco. It is served in one communal dish & everyone eats out of it with their right hand (no utensils). It is time consuming to make but it is much easier if you have a second pair of hands to help. (Smen is a special kind of rancid butter mixed with spices that is used to flavor tagines & other dishes in Morocco. It can be purchased online.)
