Moroccan chicken ( but with wine)!

This is a great soul food, easy midweek feast. Don’t get fooled by the name, you will have most of the ingredients in your pantry.

A great explosion of lemon, honey, cinnamon and cumin with a smooth silky texture, what’s not to like ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’ƒ

I had always wanted to make Moroccan tagine chicken so checked out the recipe and started making it. In between, spotted some more leftover wine ๐Ÿคฃ( yes, a cardinal sin to waste wine!) and one thing led to another and this is what I got. Try it, you will love itโ€ฆ.
