I've been experimenting with Moroccan Tagine recipes for some time, but I don't always have time to do all the work. In June 2016 ALDI came out with some “tagine sauces”, along with some improbable recipes. We tried one with numerous changes, and found it not bad. This is the result of the second attempt.

Ingredients

quantity       ingredient       step
1 kg       chicken thighs with bone (about 8)
500 g       potatoes, cut into pieces      
500 g       courgettes      
350 g       Colway®“Sundried Tomato & Cinnamon Tagine Sauce”      
300 ml       water      

As we made it the first time, I put in more water and also 120 g celery, according to Yvonne's wishes. As I expected, the celery wasn't appropriate, but it's in the photos. The water proved to be too much, so 350 ml (the contents of the jar again) seem to be appropriate for next time.

Preparation

Chop the potatoes and courgettes. Put the chicken in a tagine and add the sauce. Cover with the vegetables. The following photos show what happens if you put the vegetables in first and then pour the sauce over everything:
