Tagine of Lamb, Chickpeas and Potatoes

Cooking time:  70 minutes for menu, with breaks       Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

     You can use a tagine (if you happen to have one) for the lamb but a large skillet works just as well. 'Tagine' is both the name of a cooking vessel and the method of cooking - even if it's in a skillet. Substitute pork if you prefer. This is a great dinner party dish as there is so little work involved.

Tagine of Lamb, Chickpeas and Potatoes

Total time: 1 hour 10 minutes
   Lamb with a Moroccan influence: a bit spicy, but not hot (my preference).  Add hot sauce or harissa if you like the heat.
