Moroccan Chicken Tagine

This Moroccan Chicken Tagine is seriously so delicious, you won’t believe how easy it is to make. I’ve partnered with my friends at Casablanca Foods to show you how easy it is to make this tasty Moroccan dish. Their Mina sauces are the perfect introduction to the best of Moroccan flavors.

Today, we are working with the chicken tagine sauce. The tagine sauce is a fuse of garlic, ginger, turmeric, cumin, coriander, lemon juice, saffron, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Much like all of the Mina sauces, the Tagine sauces are incredibly versatile. They can be used for poultry, beef or seafood dishes. You can even use the tagine sauces to create rich and flavorful vegetable stews.

Now, what is Tagine? Tagine refers to slow-cooked savory stews often made with meat or fish. But, the term also refers to the clay pot the stew is cooked in. Now, because of its shallow bottom shaped like a pie dish, and a conical lid with a round top, the tagine is the perfect pot for braising. But, you can also create a variety of dishes in the pot using ingredients such as beans, couscous, and other vegetables.

Now, of course, finding a tagine to cook your stew is a little hard nowadays. But, using a deep ceramic cast-iron Dutch oven will do the job just fine. You want to make sure your Dutch oven or ceramic pot has a lid. Or, use foil to cover the pot.


Today, it is even easier to get your hands on these delicious sauces. All of Mina’s sauces can now be shopped at Thrive Market. Your one-stop shop destination for all your pantry needs now carries the taste of Morocco. With these sauces, you are able to create tasty Moroccan dishes without any hassle.
