Love the sound of this and it looks easy to make too.It would be great with couscous.

Nikky's Review | Rating

Tasty. I'd prefer it a little spicier but then my daughter wouldn't eat it. Could do with some veges in the sauce - maybe some pumpkin and carrot?

Suzy's Review | Rating

Easy, hearty and delicious. Perfect winter dish.

julia's Review | Rating

I haven't made this yet but I'm not sure I would have both chickpeas and chicken. As a vegetarian I might use the chickpeas instead of chicken and perhaps add some apricot or something else Moroccan style.

Frida's Review | Rating

Easy simple and healthy. I do like this one!

Sue's Review | Rating

Loved it, im a huge chicken fan, but hate garlic so left the garlic out.
Raisins were not a hit with the kids so will leave raisins out next time too.

Easy, delicious and any recipe with chickpeas gives it a creamy consistency. This cut of chicken means it keeps moist and is also cooking in a Targine keeps the flavours in and moisture.

Tegan's Review | Rating

I love an opportunity for use my targine and enjoyed giving this recipe a whirl. The chick peas added bulk which made the dish go further and it was filling too. I added more morrocan spices which gave it that era burst of delicious flavour.....will be doing it again sometime soon

The Chickpeas in Springwater made a great addition to the tasty Moroccan flavoured chicken. I tried the couscous but would prefer rice next time.

Shuna's Review | Rating

The dried fruit and chickpeas make a very good combination. I added steamed vegetables and it was a very easy meal suitable for lunch or dinner. It is suitable for a family meal or for an informal meal for guests.

Easy to prepare this dish, with food items we all have in our pantry and freezer. Something a little different from the everyday dish. GREAT.

Leokadia's Review | Rating

I made the Moroccan and chickpea Tagine, for our dinner guests on Saturday night.
We all loved it so much and the flavours were so delicious. My friends even asked for the recipe and one of my friends even asked for a second helping, so that says it all.

Jennie's Review | Rating

Very easy and tasty recipe, though next time I'll add a little more cumin and garlic as I think it could have done with a little more flavour boost for our taste.

Wendy's Review | Rating

The flavour was subtle and the consistency and texture of the sauce was just perfect! A bit more spice would have have complimented the Moroccan expectation.

Garry's Review | Rating

Very easy, enjoyed and will prepare again

Imelda's Review | Rating

Delicious and flavourful recipe! My mouth is already watering, can't wait to try it! Definitely one I will make often!

Marlene's Review | Rating

Disappointing. Chicken was very tender but the dish needed more flavour and colour. However do like the chick peas being in spring water rather than brine.

Kevin's Review | Rating

So easy to make and tastes delicious

Sara's Review | Rating

I make this all the time, easy, nutritious, and my fussy family love it. I wish I had an tagine, but my heavy based pot works great.

Deborah's Review | Rating

I made a delicious vegetarian version of this using pumpkin, kumara, carrots and silverbeet instead to chicken. And a vegetable stock.

Maureen's Review | Rating

My husband enjoyed this as he loves chicken and chickpeas and is hard to cook for and i loved it to

Angela's Review | Rating

I love one-pot dishes like this. It cooked up nicely in my dutch oven pan thing. Nice mix of flavours with spices, and raisins for an exotic sweet note :-).

Very easy, very good

Robyn's Review | Rating

I wasn't sure as the recipe didn't say whether or not to drain the chick peas ?? I didn't and now think that I probably should have drained before adding to the dish ...

Reply from Food in a Minute Team

Hi Robyn,

Thank you for your feedback on our recipe. We have now updated our recipe to specify that the chickpeas should be drained.
