Have you ever wondered why Moroccans love their tagine dishes so much? It's because the dish is absolutely delicious and a complete meal itself! You only need a few chunks of bread and you are good to go.
The Moroccan chicken tagine with olives and preserved lemon is the perfect example of a classic chicken tagine recipe. The combination of chicken, olives, and preserved lemons is absolutely heavenly, and the dish is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.
So, how can you make this amazing dish at home? Well, let's find out.
A Moroccan tagine pot is ideal for cooking this dish, but it's not required you can also use a heavy-based saucepan with a lid or a dutch oven.
Make sure you use unsalted olives. If the olives are salty, then you may not need to add any salt to the dish.
Some chicken with olives and preserved lemon recipes use cumin, but I prefer not to use it. The authentic Moroccan recipe does not use cumin.
