3 garlic cloves, crushed
3cm piece fresh ginger, grated
1 tbsp Spice Fusion Ras el Hanout
600g skinless chicken thigh or breast fillets, chopped into chunks

1 tbsp tomato paste
2 tbsp honey
¼ tsp crumbled saffron strands
1 cup chopped tomatoes
½ cup dried apricots

Heat the olive oil in a heavy based saucepan and gently colour onion and garlic. Add ginger and Ras el Hanout,

Transfer to a Tagine, if using.
Stir in sweet potato, tomato paste, honey and saffron. Mix well then add the chopped tomatoes,
apricots, raisins and water. Bring to a boil, then simmer, covered, until chicken is cooked
