The flavorful sauce in this chicken, fruit and vegetable tagine is easily made with items on hand. I added a delicatta squash to the mix tonight, making room for more local produce from the upcoming winter farmers market. This recipe was inspired by Better Homes and Gardens.
1-6 ounce Chicken Breast, boneless, skinless, cut in strips
1 teaspoon Olive Oil
1/4 cup Onion, diced
Brown chicken in olive oil with onion.
2 Carrots, peeled and cut in coins
1 Delicatta Squash, peeled, seeded and cut in cubes
Microwave for 4 minutes in water. Drain.
1 cup Low Sodium Chicken Broth
1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste, No Added Salt
1 Tablespoon Flour
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
3/4 teaspoon Cumin
1/2 teaspoon Fresh Ginger, grated
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
Mix together. Add to saucepan with chicken. Add carrots and squash.
Bring mixture to a simmer. Add:
1/4 cup Raisins
1/4 cup Apricots, diced
Heat until sauce thickens slightly.
