Pumpkin and Chicken Tagine with Cranberries

This recipe was created last week when I was searching for something with pumpkin and chicken in it, as it was my last day before buying groceries, those were the last two inspiring ingredients I had. However all I could find was recipes fro pumpkin and chicken curry-not exactly what I was after. Then I found a recipe for a Tagine, iv’e never made a Tagine, nor did I know what they were. But after a bit of research I discovered that a Tagine is a “historically North African dish that is named after the type of earthenware pot in which it is cooked. Moroccan tajine dishes are slow-cooked savory stews, typically made with sliced meat, poultry, or fish together with vegetables or fruit. Spices, nuts, and dried fruits are also used. Common spices include ginger, cumin, turmeric, cinnamon, and saffron. Paprika and chili are used in vegetable tajine. The sweet and sour combination is common in tajine dishes like lamb with dates and spices”

So I came up with a type of Tagine (made without the actual earthenware pot) full of chicken, vegetables, spices, herbs and cranberries. I’m incredibly happy with how it turned out, and it only takes around 30 minutes from start to plate. I really hope you enjoy!
