Healthy Easy Tagine Recipe 

Easy Tagine Recipe with CouscousWe've set out to bring you a tagine recipe that's easy, healthy and delicious. Something you can just throw into the oven and forget about for a couple of hours and then amaze your friends and family with the wonderful flavours and aromas of the Moroccan Mediterranean.
We've used whole chicken legs and wings, which work very well, but you could use any kind of meat you like.
The meat cooks perfectly without any browning beforehand and even the chicken skin is crisp and delicious.
Eat well - feel full and satisfied and lose those excess pounds without undue effort.  

A Healthy Living RecipeThis great recipe qualifies for our healthy  living seal of approval. Fresh - skinless     chicken meat (use organic if you can)       vegetables and health giving Spices.
