Chicken Tagine With Apricots and Honey

Time: 45 mins


  • 1 cup uncooked couscous
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 3/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast, pounded thin and cut into 1 inch strips
  • 1 (14 ounce) can 99% fat-free chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cups butternut squash, cubed into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 medium turnip, cubed into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup dried apricot, cut into thin slivers (the original calls for Turkish but I have also used California apricots with good results)
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 granny smith apple, peeled, cored and cut into 3/4 inch cubes
  • 3 tablespoons dried currants
  • 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can chickpeas

  • 1 Prepare couscous as directed on package. (Some couscous calls for a 1:1 ratio of couscous and water, others 2 parts water to 1 part water.).
  • 2 Combine flour, paprika, corriander, salt, cinnamon and cumin. Dredge the chicken strips in the flour mixture, shaking off and saving the excess coating.
  • 3 Mix the remaining flour into the broth, removing any lumps.
  • 4 In a non-stick large pan or Dutch oven, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook until lightly browed, about 5 minutes, Transfer cooked chicken to a plate.
  • 5 Add the broth to the pan along with the squash, turnips and apricots. Bring to a low boil, lower heat a touch and simmer about 10 minutes until the vegetables are tender.
  • 6 Return the chicken to the pan with the vinegar, apple, currants, chickpeas and honey. Simmer until the chicken os cooked through and the apples are tender, about 5 minutes.
  • 7 To serve, place the couscous onto a large plattter or individual serving bowls. Create a small hollow in the center. Pour the chicken in the center and serve.
