  2. Add 150ml water, the saffron, honey and carrots, season, then stir well. Bring to the boil, cover tightly, then simmer for 30 mins until the chicken is tender. Uncover and increase the heat for about 5 mins to reduce the sauce a little. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with lemon wedges for squeezing over.

Added garlic, cumin, cinnamon and coriander with the onions. Then added apricots and sultanas with the veg stock that I used instead of water. Added a healthy amount of pepper and juice of half a lemon at the end. Very good....will do again many times.

I added some tomatoes to this recipe and reallly makes difference by balancing out the flavours so they're not to overpowering. My boyfriend I thought it was delicious!

I found this a bit less flavoursome that I would expect a tagine to be - the five a day tagine on this site is much tastier. This may be because hardly there was hardly any liquid in the pan so I added a bit more water, even so there wasn't much sauce to speak of.

Very tasty with chicken thighs, very simple and easy to make after a busy day at work. Even the children enjoyed it (age 3 & 1) which is becoming a rarity!
