Recipe Video: Chicken Tagine with Preserved Lemons and Olives

I happy to officially introduce the Tara Kitchen Cooking Show. On the show, I plan to share some of my favorite recipes and what I have learned as a self-taught cook over the years. I love Moroccan spices and flavors so you can expect to see plenty of that in my recipes. 

I am starting with one of my favorite recipes: a Chicken Tagine with Preserved Lemons and Olives. It's easy, healthy and perfect for a casual meal with friends or family.

I hope you enjoy! Please let me know if you have any questions. If you make the recipe, please share a picture with us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the #TaraKithchen hashtag.
