Chicken, pear and honey tagine recipe

For this recipe, you can also use pears from the garden if it's in season, or pears in syrup sold in a tin.

  • Start by cutting the chicken breasts into pieces
  • Heat the tagine dish with the olive oil
  • Brown the chicken breasts 2 to 3 min
  • Add the chopped onions and crushed garlic
  • Add honey and let caramelize for a few moments without darkening
  • Pour in the chicken broth
  • Cook for 10 minutes over low heat and covered

Once the meat is cooked, you can add the pears whose cooking is shorter

  • Peel and seed the pears
  • Cut the pears into quarters
  • So add the pears to the meat and cook for another 10 minutes
  • Sprinkle with saffron and cinnamon
  • Mix everything together and cook for another 5 minutes

You can serve the tagine once cooked, but also prepare it the day before and reheat it at the last moment, this allows for a more tender meat.

Depending on tastes and seasons, you can also flavor with herbs such as parsley, coriander, basil, chervil, etc.

Enjoy your meal !
