Moroccan Ras El Hanout “Tagine” (2018 Package Recipe)

This is the recipe that was on our original 2018 packaging. The big differences are the optional ingredients; dried apricots, flaked almonds and green olives.

Shopping List & Prep (serves 4) 

  • 1½ lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts (or substitute with tofu and/or vegetables like carrots or sweet potatoes) cut into 1-2" pieces
  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced
  • ¼ small bunch fresh Italian parsley, roughly chopped—approx. ¼ cups
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large lemon, cut into 6 thick slices
  • 15.5 oz can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups chicken or vegetable stock or broth
  • 1 TBSP butter or extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup pitted green olives, roughly chopped (optional)

  3. Add tomatoes. Cook, stirring often until tomatoes are broken down, about 10 minutes.
