- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 onion
- 2 garlic
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp ground cumin

Mix the chicken breast and thighs (or wings) with the harissa paste in a bowl until well combined. Cover with cling film and chill in the fridge for two hours.
Heat the vegetable oil in the base of a tagine dish, or heavy-based casserole dish. Fry the chicken for 2-3 minutes. Remove from the dish using a slotted spoon and set aside.
Fry the onion for five minutes, or until soft. Stir in the garlic and spices.
Add the meat back to the dish, along with the stock, apricots and tomatoes. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Bring to the boil, cover with the lid and simmer for one hour. (Add the chickpeas after 45 minutes and stir until well combined.)
Stir in the mint and parsley at the end of cooking.
Serve alongside couscous and Greek-style yoghurt, topped with the almonds.
