Moroccan Tagine

Want a delicious super easy kid friendly one pot dish? You MUST try this! There was none left after a few extra helpings of this delicious Moroccan stew!

Moroccan Tagine


1 tablespoon olive oil (or any oil really)
3 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves cut into bite size chunks & seasoned with salt/pepper
1 onion - chopped
3 cloves minced garlic
1 small butternut squash or 2 large sweet potatoes peeled and chopped
1 15 oz can garbanzo beans (chick peas) drained
1 carrot - chopped and peeled
1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes - do not drain
1 14 ounce can (or 2 cups) vegetable broth
1 tbs sugar
Juice of small lemon
1 tsp salt
1 1/8 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp Garlic Powder
2 dash's of cayenne pepper
1 dash of black pepper
chopped fresh Parsley


1. Heat the oil in a large skillet, add your chicken, onion, and minced garlic, cook until browned.
2. Then add your squash or sweet potatoes, garbanzo beans, carrots, un-drained tomatoes, veggie broth, sugar, lemon juice , coriander, cayenne pepper & garlic powder to your pan.
3. Cook until veggies are nice and tender, about half an hour depending on which veggie you chose.
4. Top with fresh parsley.

NOTE: We use sweet potatoes in our home because butternut squash can never be found. When stores do have it , it is expensive. The potatoes never cost more than 2 bucks and the kids LOVE them. Can be made without meat.

Side Suggestion: We like ours served over couscous with a side of Naan.

Feel free to share the recipe! :) All recipes I post are created by me unless I say otherwise.
