Recipe: Chicken and Green Bean Tagine

Green Bean Tagine- try saying that three times as fast! Me and my boyfriend have been eating very healthy since the excesses of our holiday, and this dish is delicious, low in fat, and really high in vitamins and minerals. Like all tagines, this is high on flavour and spices, but not on chilli heat, like a curry, so these dishes are good to cook for a crowd!

Chicken and Green Bean Tagine (serves 2)

25g butter
½ white onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
15g finely minced ginger (I used very lazy ginger)
2 chicken breasts, sliced into strips
¼ tsp turmeric
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp paprika
1 tsp garam masala
300g tinned chopped tomatoes
200ml chicken stock
1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
1 tbsp honey
150g green beans, trimmed and halved
Bunch of fresh parsley, diced  finely
2 tbsp toasted pine nuts
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Fry the onion, garlic and ginger in the butter for 5 minutes. Add the chicken, turmeric, cinnamon, paprika and garam masala, and cook for a further 6 minutes, stirring often.
2. Add the tomatoes, stock, sweet chilli sauce and honey, and cook for a further 10 minutes, on a medium heat. Add the green beans and cook for 7 minutes, stirring until thickened.
3. Season to taste and serve, with rice or couscous, topped with fresh parsley and toasted pine nuts.
