Raise your hand if you love fall! I know some people love spring, the whole first shoots of green popping up after a long winter sort of thing, but not me. It’s all about fall. Those first cool mornings offering a hint of things to come. At the very first smidgen of coolness, I immediately want to leap headfirst into fall. Boots, jackets, sweaters…and warm comforting soups and braises.
That is why I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was to make Apricot, Plum, and Chicken Tagine with Olives from Cooking Light Annual Recipes 2009: Every Recipe...A Year's Worth of Cooking Light Magazine
It was everything I wanted in my first fall dish. Warm and spicy. The house smelled divine. If you follow the link above you can find the recipe at the Cooking Light site, or check out the annual – also with the link above. I used to keep all of my Cooking Light magazines, but I love the annuals. It is so much easier having everything all in one book.
The only thing different I did on the recipe was that I used bone-in thighs. So, to play it safe, I increased the cooking time by about 15 minutes.
