Lemon Chicken Tagine

Recipe: Lemon Chicken Tagine

Lemon chicken tagine recipe, a tagine barely spiced up with chili, and the raz el hanout flavored it well, it was divine. I like to taste all these oriental dishes where the flavors are mixed, the flavors a little spicy but always slightly. Besides, I don’t remember having eaten too strong a dish, they play with the spices but master them perfectly. I also really like lime when cooked in a sauce and always flavor it lightly, very discreetly. But I especially like the moment when you discover your tagine in front of friends, the colors in your eyes. Then come the perfumes, always a great time, good this time my tagine was too small, I did not have this pleasure. I did not take any risks with the lemon chicken, it is a flawless marriage, moreover the chicken drumstick lends itself well to meat in sauce, it perfumes very quickly.
