We've really gone to town on our ingredient blends to try to capture those traditional tagine flavours of dried fruits, preserved lemons and classic flavours of cinnamon, cloves, coriander and nutmeg in our little pots of goodness so you can enjoy this dish in just 20 minutes!

How Our Recipes Kits Work
We provide flavour ingredients:
- Tagine Paste
- Tagine Garnish
- Garlic Paste
Your shopping list:
- chicken thigh fillets
- tin chopped tomatoes
- tin chickpeas
- dried apricots
- dried couscous (or quinoa if gluten-free)
- Olive oil
Our 20 minute recipe
Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large frying pan (or tagine!) over medium heat and then fry the chicken for 3 mins. If you’re using quinoa to make this gluten-free, prepare it now and follow packet instructions for cooking. Stir the Garlic Paste through the chicken.
Add the Tagine Paste to the chicken, mix and simmer for 5 mins. Then add the Tagine Garnish, chopped tomatoes and apricots and simmer for 8 mins. Meanwhile see step 3.
Cook the couscous according to the packet instructions and set aside.
Tip the chickpeas into the tagine and simmer for 3 more mins.
Stick a fork in the couscous (or quinoa) to fluff it up and divide it between 2 bowls. Top with the chicken tagine and garnish with fresh coriander and the juice of 1 lemon (if using).

I loved it. It had a nice kick to it which explained the apricots! The only downside was having to use chicken thigh fillets, every time there’s so much waste, will definitely have again but made with chicken breast. Loved it.

Used lamb and pimped up the cous cous but really enjoyed it

Amazing! Added some onions, peppers and chilli and it was just like eating in Morocco.
Emma - Oct 26, 2018
Bold garlic and slightly bitter herbal taste to this, and we weren't keen. It was more mellow the following day, and we enjoyed it in wraps instead of with cous cous.

Really tasty and not much chopping and preparation needed for this one!

Didn’t like toot with chicken thighs
Ele - Sep 12, 2018
Sadly this is the first one I haven't enjoyed. The spices were too strong and it was a bit dry. Maybe my cooking!
D - Sep 11, 2018
Second time getting it as my young daughter asked for it again as she liked it so much the first time. Nice flavours, great way to eat chickpeas too. Apricots are nice in the dish but doesn’t over sweeten it. Enjoyed this.
Anna - Sep 10, 2018
Too many chick peas, couscous is always tasteless
