Moroccan Chicken Stew

Cooking time: 45 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for "menu" instructions

   This was my first foray into the cuisine of North Africa.  I decided it was time to expand my horizons. It's an easy winter dish - 15 minutes to get together, then 30 to simmer.

Moroccan Chicken Stew

Total time: 45 minutes
   This is a simple tagine, or stew with the flavors of a North African souk.  Add harissa or other hot sauce to taste. If you can't find a small - medium sweet potato, skip the white potato and use 1 large sweet potato.
