Chicken & Onion Tajin

Today's recipe is a pure Moroccan dish; chicken Tajin. In fact, there are many varieties of the dish, but I chose to present onion and chicken Tajin as it is one of my favorites. You can cook it in no time and it is perfect for lunch or dinner. Moreover, this recipe is light, delicious, and healthy. I hope you enjoy it!

Tips: - for a better taste, soak your chicken in water + salt + vinegar or lemon for at least 
          30 min. Clean and soak it again in water + salt + ginger + vinegar or lemon for at 
          least 15 min. Rinse and let drain. 


- Half a chicken, cut (500g)
- 1 bunch of small onions, sliced
- 3 tbsp coriander and parsley, chopped
- 1 onion, cut
- 4 gloves garlic, cut
- 1 quarter pickled lemon
- Some green & red olives
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- Salt, pepper, ginger, turmeric, dried safran.

1- In your Tajin, put the chicken, cut onion, half of the herbs, half of the seasonings, and olive oil. Cook for 5 to 10 min and toss from time to time.

2- Place the sliced onions, the other half of herbs, seasonings, pickled lemon, and olives. Add 1/2 to 1 cup of water. Cover and cook in low heat for 30 min or until the onions are well cooked.
