Chicken Tagine with Pomegranates

Fall 2003, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (17 votes)

The Moroccan word tagine, when translated simply as "stew," hardly does justice to this beautifully fragrant, succulent one-dish meal. (Tagine is also the name of the distinctive pot in which the meal is traditionally cooked and served.) Pomegranate juice lends a tart depth of flavor to the sauce; use bottled juice and skip the garnish when the fruit is not in season. Serve with whole-wheat couscous to soak up the delicious sauce.

Delicious and Easy

Great recipe! I served it with quinoa but I will try couscous or brown rice next time since the quinoa didn't soak up the extra juice as well. I did make a few changes, due to what I had on hand: instead of pearl onions, I coarsely chopped a small white onion and sauteed it for a few minutes in the oil and spices, and I used cranberry-pomegranate juice from concentrate (it was less expensive than pure pomegranate juice). It turned out delicious, even my guy approved! Even though the stew takes a while to cook, the hands-on prep time was minimal, making this an easy dish.

So good made again!

Great dish to use up leftover fruit. Spouse loved it and readily ate all of the leftovers. A dish that will be more frequently on our menu!

Great use of left over fruit, easy to make

I have been to Morocco and eaten tagines that are very similar to this one. This recipe really nails the authentic flavor of a home-cooked Moroccan dish. Made this with couscous and it was absolutely delicious!
