  • Summary

    The Moroccan word tagine, when translated simply as "stew," hardly does justice to this beautifully fragrant, succulent one-dish meal. (Tagine is also the name of the distinctive pot in which the meal is traditionally cooked and served.) Pomegranate juice lends a tart depth of flavor to the sauce; use bottled juice and skip the garnish when the fruit is not in season. Serve with whole-wheat couscous to soak up the delicious sauce.

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/4 cups fresh pearl onions, or frozen small whole onions
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • 1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed
    • 1 1/2 cups pomegranate juice
    • 3/4 cup pitted prunes
    • 1/2 cup dried apricots
    • 15 sprigs cilantro, tied with kitchen string
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, for garnish
    • 1 cup pomegranate seeds, (1 large fruit, see Tip) for garnish
