About this recipe: Ras El Hanout is a Moroccan classic spice blend with a curry like flavour. This is a great dish to make for guests because the fragrance of the chicken as it's cooking permeates the whole house and smells amazing. Serve it with rice or couscous.
As with all recipes, I changed it a bit - added a tin of tomatoes, two more carrots and two teaspoons of cumin - depends on what your ras el hanout tastes like because they are all different. I also cooked this in a tagine in the oven for one hour after the first stage of browning in a saucepan and added more water. I also added some raisins in the rice to add a little sweetness to the dish. It was delicious. Will do this one again. - 18 Nov 2012
I changed it also - just because I can - I added tomatoes and chickpeas and extra carrots also i used a whole chicken cut into 10 pieces as well as cooking in a lovely terracotta tagine I happen to own. It turned out really good. I also served it with baby new potatoes as we'd had rice dishes twice in the last three days Otherwise perfect. - 23 Feb 2016
