Have made this twice now, once with squash, and once with two peeled and chopped yams. The first time, I accidentally added an extra can of chick peas, and it was so good, I doubled it again the next time! Also added a teaspoon each of cinnamon and cumin. Beautiful recipe both times, big hit at my house.

Despite the fact that I punched this up with a tablespoon of minced ginger root and about a teaspoon of lemon zest (sauted with the chicken, onions and garlic) and added 1 tsp of tumeric, 1 tsp of cumin and 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon with the spices, it still tasted rather bland. The chicken didn't pick up any of the flavors and the garbanzo beans seemed to add texture but no flavor. I think next time I'll put the chicken in a ziploc bag with the garlic, onion, ginger and lemon zest for a few hours before starting. I did like the butternut squash, though. It added just enough sweetness.

If you know me at all, you know I love to cook. If you don’t know me, any of my friends will tell you that I’m pretty good at it. Last night was no exception, if I must say so myself. TagineIt’s called Tagine. A Tagine is a portable oven used in moroccan cooking. It’s also the name of a dish made from vegetables and meat. I cooked the meat separately this time, but I’m sure it would be terrific in the pot. It’s funny, I’m not really a big vegetable eater and some of the vegetables in this dish are not very appealing to me, but the combination of the vegetables and the spices makes this something special. You have to try it.

Very tasty. Per other reviews, I added half a green pepper, a handful of chopped apricots, and a few dashes of cinnamon, turmeric, and cumin.

I decided to make this dish without the chicken. I'm in love. It was so good. I cannot wait to make it again. I forwarded the recipe to a friend of mine, who wasn't too excited about it, but promised me she would try it. She fell in love too. THANK YOU FOR SHARING!

I've made this a few times and think it's great! I've tried it both with the butternut squash, and with sweet potatoes (yams) when I had no squash -- either will work fine. Instead of ground coriander (I don't have any) I use fresh coriander -- cilantro. I chop about 1 1/2T and it gives it a pretty look and great flavor. Last time, I also added 1/2t cumin, as well as 1/4 cup raisins. It has a nice sweet/salty flavor -- would be great with fresh lemon wedges as a garnish, as well. To make it more filling, last time I cooked a couple cups of basmati rice and stirred it in at the last minute... not so soupy, but still a nice consistency, and it goes a bit farther.

This is an incredibly awesome meal!!! If there were more stars I'd rate it higher :) Very easy to do…it has a slightly sweet taste – from the squash I suppose. I added a dash of cinnamon as they were recommending it in the previous reviews. It’s soo good over couscous (I cooked couscou with chicken broth to add more flavour) My husband and children loved it!! I will definitely be making this again!!!

This dish is hands down one of the best things I've ever tasted! I served with flatbread instead of couscous at a dinner party and ever one is still raving about it!
