Ras El Hanout is a Moroccan classic spice blend with a curry-like flavour which I found at "Herbie's Spices." This is a great dish to make for guests because the fragrance of the chicken as its cooking permeates the whole house and smells amazing. Serve it with rice or couscous.
I couldn't believe I found this recipe here. A friend had given me a sample pack of Herbie's Spices which I'd totally forgotten about so I made this dish. Quick, easy and smells amazing just like it says. It went well with the Spinach Leek and Bean Soup... a bit of a couscous theme I think! - 06 Oct 2008
As with all recipes, I changed it a bit - added a tin of tomatoes, two more carrots and two teaspoons of cumin - depends on what your ras el hanout tastes like because they are all different. I also cooked this in a tagine in the oven for one hour after the first stage of browning in a saucepan and added more water. I also added some raisins in the rice to add a little sweetness to the dish. It was delicious. Will do this one again. - 18 Nov 2012 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
I changed it also - just because I can - I added tomatoes and chickpeas and extra carrots also i used a whole chicken cut into 10 pieces as well as cooking in a lovely terracotta tagine I happen to own. It turned out really good. I also served it with baby new potatoes as we'd had rice dishes twice in the last three days Otherwise perfect. - 23 Feb 2016 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
