Chicken & Winter Squash Tagine

by Berkeley Wellness  |  

A tagine is a Moroccan stew, named for the pot it is cooked in (a round earthenware baking dish covered with a conical top). Traditional tagines were made by placing the stew ingredients in the covered baking dish, and then mounding the hot coals of a cook fire up the sides of the conical cover.

Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

2 teaspoons vegetable oil, such as olive or canola oil

4 skinless, bone-in chicken thighs (5 ounces each)

1 large onion, finely chopped
