Peach & Chicken Tagine

This yummy peach and chicken recipe does look like it needs a lot of ingredients, but a lot of them are spices that you probably already have in the spice rack. It is definitely worth it.

The peaches are perfect for this time of year – stone fruits are best from now until mid-April, so get stuck in!
