Let’s talk about this tagine for a second: it’s crazy good. The dish has so much going on—the fragrant and heavily-spiced sauce, the jammy apricots, the crunchy almonds—and yet it totally works. There’s good reason why this Moroccan dish is a classic.

Tagine is the name for both the North African dish and the vessel in which it's prepared. The idea is very similar to Western-style braising in Dutch ovens: combine ingredients, cover, and cook over low heat until tender and tasty. The tagine traps steam, creating a very moist cooking environment with even heat.

 3 pounds chicken legs and thighs (about 4 each)
 1 yellow onion, diced
 1 carrot, peeled and diced
 2 cloves garlic, minced
 1 -inch piece ginger root, peeled and minced
 1 tsp coriander
 1 tsp cumin
 1 tsp cinnamon
 ½ cup dried apricots, roughly chopped
 1 tbsp honey
 ¼ cup almonds, roughly chopped
 2 cups (1 15-oz can) chickpeas, drained and rinsed
 2 tbsp cilantro, optional, for serving

This is not a quick weeknight meal, by any means, but it is most certainly a lazy “make your house smell amazing” weekend kind of meal. It also makes terrific leftovers, so even if you aren’t throwing a dinner party or making Sunday dinner for your family, it’s worth making this for the meals it will give you all week long.
