    Aromatic cumin, coriander and cinnamon give these chicken breasts a Middle Eastern flavour, and including chickpeas further enhances the ethnic theme. Courgettes and sugarsnap peas add colour and all the benefits of fresh vegetables.

    One of several jewels in the crown of Moroccan cuisine. This delightful tagine is really easy to make and tastes fabulous. Everything is cooked together in a casserole dish with a wonderful thick sauce emerging.

    A delicious North African chicken stew. This can be served with any couscous recipe of your choosing, I like a vegetable one. It goes well with flat breads and salads, like a fattoush or a tabbouleh.

    The warm flavours of the mixed spice work extremely well with the sweetness of the dried fruit. The flavours enhance very much over time so tastes even more delightful the following evening. All in all a wonderful dish in which the taste belies the little effort engaged in its preparation. Serve with couscous or rice and/or a mixed salad.

    I was given this recipe a little while back and it's become a family favourite. The sweet and sticky sauce goes incredibly well with the chicken and rice. Absolutely superb!
