This is a really simple recipe although my chicken needed about an hour to cook before adding the chickpeas and tomatoes. I didn't have any Moroccan spice so went with Sumac and Sichuan pepper which was delicious.

So simple and yet so incredibly tasty! Absolutely loved this meal and will be a regular in our house from now on. It would be lovely with other herbs & spices but we really enjoyed the Moroccan flavours.

This was lovely...it transformed the leftover veg in the bottom drawer of the fridge. No chicken but still delicious, served with lemon and coriander couscous. Great for lunch next day too.

Lovely meal, made my own seasoning with cumin, Coriander, ginger, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg and cayenne pepper. Served it with spicy cous cous. Highly recommended:)

Thoroughly delicious, easy to prepare and practically cooks itself! I substituted the parsnips (cos I didnt have any) for a green pepper and a sweet potato which was delightful. Made up the Moroccan spice from another recipe on here (5 a day Moroccan tagine) easy peasy. Nicely flavourful without being too hot. A filling and healthy meal as described! Have enough left for tomorrow plus a wrap with the veg for lunch. Great!

Really enjoyed this but would probably fry some chicken pieces and throw them into the mix rather than roast chicken quarters next time. It would make it much easier to eat. Lots of flavour. Would recommend -why not, eh?
