Sunny Morocco is famous for many varieties of stew called tagine. Meat or poultry is simmered in a clay cooking vessel with broth, vegetables, olives and spices such as cinnamon, cumin, ginger and turmeric. Our version is cooked in a large skillet, as the traditional clay cooking vessels are hard to find.
Cooking chicken with the skin on adds to the flavor, not the fat. Research has found that the fat doesn't transfer to the meat during cooking. So go ahead and leave the skin on—it helps keep juices in, creates more moist and tender met, and boosts the flavor. Then, once the chicken is cooked, remove the skin and throw it away to save on fat, calories and cholesterol.
