Denise Shavandy's "Moroccan Chicken Tagine with Preserved Lemon and Olives"

October 17, 2012

“This fragrant, light dish will wake up your wintertime,” says Texas State Technical College Culinary Institute Chef Denise Shavandy. “This meal can be made ahead of time, it reheats nicely. Traditionally the dish is cooked in a tagine pot, but can be cooked in any covered pot or slow cooker.”
“This is a nice, moist dish. We want to keep the liquid, so make sure your dish remains covered while it cooks as noted in the recipe,” shared Shavandy.
