Chicken tajine with onions and dried raisins Madada style!
Preparation time: 20 minutes - Cooking time: 1h45 minutes
Ingredients per person :
• 1 chicken leg
• 2 big onions sliced thinly
• 1 cloves of garlic finely chopped
• 25 grams of raisins
• 2 tablespoons of olive oil
• ½ teaspoon chicken mix
• ½ teaspoon of turmeric
• ½ teaspoon of ginger
• ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
• A pinch of saffron
• A stick of cinnamon
• 1 table spoon of honey
Place the chicken in a tajine; add a thinly sliced onion, a finely
chopped clove of garlic, two tablespoons of olive oil and the spices:
turmeric, ginger, salt, saffron, the mrouziya (mixture of spices for
chicken) and a stick of cinnamon. Mix so that the pieces of chicken
marinate well. If you have time, you can prepare the marinade a day in
advance and leave it in the refrigerator, leaving out the garlic. The
chicken will then be softer and tastier.
On a low heat sear the
pieces of chicken on all sides for about 40 to 45 minutes; turn the meat
frequently. Meanwhile, let the raisins soak in cold water.
the chicken is seared, add the second thinly sliced onion, the raisins
and, if needed, a tea glass of cool water so that the chicken does not
stick. Sprinkle with a teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Do not mix. With a
tablespoon, pour regularly some of the sauce on the onions and the
raisins; it will give them the taste and the colour of the sauce.
Let the tajine cook with the lid half on for approximately one hour
then check if the meat is cooked with a fork. If it is good add a table
spoon of honey on the top. If you still have a lot of sauce, you can
take the lid off and let the sauce reduce until you obtain the desired
Enjoy your tajine!
