Moroccan Almond Chicken Recipe

Ingredients
1 cup fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
2 large red bell peppers, chopped 
2 large tomatoes, diced 
1 small onion, chopped
2 large carrots, peeled and cut into 1/4" thick planks
1 large potatoes, cut into 1/2" slices or wedges
1/4 cup flaked almonds
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons olive oil

Directions
In a large bowl mix all ingredients by hand omitting the olive oil and broth. Pour enough of the olive oil into the tagine to coat the bottom. 

Layer the vegetable at the bottom of the tagine, and arrange by cooking times, vegetables that need longer cooking are placed at the bottom of the tagine. 

Add broth to the tagine, and place over medium heat. 

Cover the tagine, and bring the dish to a simmer. Adjust the heat to medium-low or low, checking occasionally to be sure that you can still hear the tagine simmering. 

Tagine is done when potatoes are fork tender, about 10 minutes.

Simple Cooking Tips

Make sure your cooking work area has good lighting so you can safely see what you are cutting, seasoning and cooking.

Get comfortable with the recipe, read it all the way through. Always read and re-read your recipes before you start cooking.

Season and taste as you go. Always taste your food before seasoning.

Spices and herbs are essential to African food cooking and baking. Keep your spices away from sources of heat like the stove or lights. Herbs and spices can lose their flavor when exposed to humidity and heat.

Recipes are only a guideline so feel free to substitute items that you like.

When cooking with chili peppers, protect your hands and eyes by wearing rubber gloves. Or coat your hands in vegetable oil and wash them with soap and water immediately after handling.
