Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.

Chicken Tagine

Here’s my 30 minute minimal effort Chicken Tagine. Simply whizz up the tagine paste add stock and squash (you could add sweet potato instead) and add ready cooked chicken. I used ready cooked breasts but this is a great way to use up leftover chicken. Simply omit the chicken, add a can of chickpeas and you have a vegetarian Tagine!
