Lemon Chicken Tagine


4 each boneless skinless chicken thighs or 2 each chicken leg quarters

1 Tablespoon Ras el Hanout spice blend

2 Tablespoon olive oil to coat pan

1 teaspoon sea salt

2 medium white onions - large dice

1 Tablespoon minced garlic

1 cup olives - rough chopped

1 preserved lemon - slivered

¼ cup white wine

1 teaspoon potato starch

2 cups chicken stock

Coat the chicken thighs or leg quarters with the spice blend and salt. Heat a pan over medium-high heat and add olive oil. Sear the tops of the thigh until they are a dark golden brown. Remove chicken from pan, but leave the pan on heat.

Add the diced onion, reduce heat to medium, and cook until translucent. Meanwhile, dice the seared chicken thigh. Add chicken thigh, olives, and preserved lemon to the pan. Cook until the onion has taken on a little color. Deglaze with white wine.

Whisk together potato starch and chicken stock. Add to pan and stir regularly until the liquid boils. Reduce liquid to desired consistency. Serve over couscous or rice.
