A fragrant and tangy chicken dish that will transport you to North Africa. Chicken is stewed with briny olives, sweet currants, and toasted almonds and served over couscous for a faithful take on the comforting tagine dishes you find in Tunisia and Morocco. The chirchi, a Tunisian condiment made with spiced carrots and butternut squash, provides a spicy tartness.
