About this Recipe

In his travels through Morocco, Chef Travis discovered a spice blend that honors the warming flavors in this tagine-inspired dish. Tagine is typically a rich stew with meat and a slew of vegetables. The term “tagine” also refers to the clay vessel in which the dish is often cooked. We wanted to re-create those same flavors but make the dish faster and easier!

    • Add chicken to bowl with seasonings and toss to coat.

    Warm flatbreads & serve

    • When your food is done, remove metal tray from Brava, immediately slide glass tray into top shelf and close door. The residual heat will warm flatbreads.

    • Remove flatbreads from Brava and cut into wedges. Serve flatbreads and lemon yogurt sauce on the side.
