• 2 tbsp rapeseed oil, plus extra for the couscous
  • 640g chicken thigh fillets, skinless and boneless, chopped into chunks
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Large pinch saffron threads
  • 75g ready-to-eat dried apricots, cut into quarters
  • 4 tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • Handful coriander, finely chopped
  • 200g couscous
  • 2 tbsp Sainsbury’s Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp flaked almonds, toasted


  1. 1

    In a large saucepan, heat the rapeseed oil. Add the chicken and brown all over, turning occasionally. Remove from the pan and set aside. 

  2. 2

    Add the onions and garlic to the pan. Cook on a low heat for 10 minutes until softened and golden, adding a little water if it starts to stick. Add the spices and continue to cook for a further minute. 

  3. 3

    Return the chicken to the pan and add the apricots, tomatoes and half the coriander. Pour in 400ml water, cover and cook on a low heat for 30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Add a splash more water if the tagine seems dry. Cook the couscous according to packet instructions. Fluff up the couscous with a fork, then stir through 1 tbsp rapeseed oil per serving to separate the grains.

  4. 4

    Blitz the tagine with a hand blender to the desired consistency for baby or toddler. Scatter over the remaining coriander to serve and for the adults' dishes, sprinkle over the almonds and a spoonful of yogurt.
