The Lebanese Recipes Kitchen (The home of delicious Lebanese Recipes and Middle Eastern food recipes) invites you to try Chicken Tagine with Onions, Honey, and Mint Recipe. Enjoy the Middle Eastern Cuisine and learn how to make Chicken Tagine with Onions, Honey, and Mint.
Tagine (tah-jeen) refers both to this stewlike recipe and the wide, shallow clay pot with a cone- or dome-shaped lid traditionally used to cook it in North Africa. (A Dutch oven will also work.) Tagines are usually made with chicken or lamb, but any meat or vegetable that braises well can be used.
Yield: Makes 4 to 6 servings
3 tablespoons fresh chopped mint
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 (4-pound) chicken, cut into 8 pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
6 garlic cloves, smashed
4 fresh mint sprigs
4 fresh thyme sprigs
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 red onion, thinly sliced
3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup honey
1 lemon, quartered
Garnishes: fresh chopped mint, 1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted
1. Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl. Add chicken, turning to coat.
2. Heat oil and butter in a tagine or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add chicken, skin side down, and cook 4 to 5 minutes per side or until golden brown. (Cook in batches, if necessary.) Transfer to a plate.
3. Add garlic to pan, and sauté about 1 minute. Add mint, thyme, broth, chicken, and any juices that drained onto plate. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 30 to 35 minutes or until chicken is tender.
4. Bring onion and next 3 ingredients to a simmer in a separate saucepan over low heat; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until lemon becomes soft and liquid thickens. Discard herb sprigs; pour glaze over chicken, and garnish, if desired.
