Lemon Chicken Tagine

This dish is really tasty! If you like different things every here and there then you will love this. I dont have a Tagine so i used a glass pyrex baking dish and wrapped it well with foil to secure the heat.

1 whole chicken quatered and skinned
2 gloves garlic mashed
1 tablespoon of cumin
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon corriander
1 teaspoon ginger powder
1 teaspoon tumeric
1 teaspoon of saffron soaked in water.
1/2 cup of lemon juice
2 onion
1 tomatoe
1 handful of olives
2 tablespoons of oil
1 bunch parsley chopped
1 bunch of coriander stalks chopped

Mint Yogurt
1 tub of greek yogurt
1 teapsoon sugar
handful of chopped mint(finely chopped)

In a bowl place your mashed garlic spices and safron in water and chopped herbs with oil,  and  lemon juice. mix very vell. Place your chicken in the marinade and set aside to marinade for 2 hours.
In a pyrex dish slice onions and place at the bottom of the dish. Then place your chicken and marinade on top along with another sliced onions on top. Slice tomatoes go on the top as well olives. Garnish with lots corriander. Now place it in a hot oven for 2 and a half hours or 45 minutes if you are using a proper tagine. Serve with cous cous and Minted yogurt which is light and refereshing. Il post the recipe below.

Minted yogurt is simple, place your yogurt in a bowl along with sugar and mint and mix well. very refreshing with spicy dishes.
