Moroccan Magic

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.

Chicken Tagine
(Serves 3)

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.

Serve over:
Brown Rice

Happy Friday!
