Stephen - Jun 14, 2019

Nice and spicy, definitely will have again.

Maggie - Jun 13, 2019

Has a 2 heat rating but not hot at all.

Janet - Jun 11, 2019

Really lovely swapped apricot for mango and cooked for longer lovely flavours

Tracey - Jun 09, 2019

Used dried apricots but should have cut them smaller, similar size to the chick peas would have been better.

Lisa - Jun 08, 2019

This was so lovely & super easy to make. Could use other meats if preferred. We really enjoyed this.

Morgane - Jun 06, 2019

Did not really taste like a tagine to be honest. It was nice but the taste was a bit too strong and the sauce too thick.

Deborah - Jun 05, 2019

Didn’t think this was very nice - too many chickpeas for the dish

Heidi - Jun 05, 2019

Not to our tastes...

Josie - Jun 02, 2019

Samantha - May 23, 2019

Fruity and flavourful

Lee - May 22, 2019

Nice but apricots don’t add much to proceedings

Scott - May 14, 2019

No for me this . Apricots a nono

Kirsty - May 14, 2019

I thought the flavours were a bit over powering, the amount of cous cous was out of proportion and it was lacking vegetables of some sort. It was nice enough and good for lunch the next day, but not up to the standard of other recipes.

Gabriela - May 13, 2019

Too much going on, feel like it should either just have chicken or just have chickpeas not both... the flavour wasn’t really there as a result

Lesley - May 13, 2019

Lovely and very tasty. Was a little worried it would be too much liquid from the tinned tomatoes but added the chick peas and it thickened. Will definitely be ordering this dish again

Olivia - May 05, 2019

Loved this recipe, one of my favourites so far.

Rachel - Apr 09, 2019

Tastes good but a bit too much spicy heat for us! It’s a 2 out of 3 on your heat rating - I’ll have to pay more attention when I choose recipes

Sandra - Apr 07, 2019

I liked it but think that the quantity of apricots was too much. Will decrease when I try it again.

Brilliantly easy to cook and tastes like a traditional slow cooked meal. Quinoa was a great suggestion.

Derrick - Mar 15, 2019

Really nice.

Philip - Mar 13, 2019

Not the best dish we have had. Nothing wrong with it per se but just tasted like one of those sauces you can buy in a jar at the supermarket. Would not choose this one again.

Kirstie - Mar 08, 2019

Very nice! Easy to make and tasted better than expected
