Chicken with Apricots and Almonds (Tagine)

Chicken Tagine with Apricots and Almonds

Good mis en place will make this an easy recipe to follow. You can use a dutch oven instead of Tagine.
I recommend removing the skin from the chicken and making sure to remove and clean any blood or gibblets as it will "brown speckle" the dish.
Also remove the parsley and cilantro after 10 minutes to prevent it from breaking appart and staining the dish green and wrap it in cheesecloth just in case.
Chicken will cook for 30 min with ingredients, you will add the honey mixture for the last 10 minutes.

Enchiladas Verdes - Adapted from Rick Bayless

From Rick Bayless: "Here is a recipe for the classic Mexican enchiladas, the ones that combine a flavor that is traditionally tart and piquant with the mealy meatiness of corn tortillas, the tenderness of chicken and a sharp, salty adornment of aged Mexican cheese. They’re rolled up and sauced in cafeterías (especially the new, bright chain restaurants) everywhere—and with above-average fervor in the heartland sections of Central and West-Central Mexico. They’re simple to make, easy to enjoy and attractively filling.

Enchiladas Verdes

Chicken Pot Pie

From "Cook Your Meals the Lazy Way": This recipe relies almost entirely on commercial ingredients not least of which is the meat from a rotisserie chicken (or left over chicken meat from another dish), and yet the result is utterly delicious. You'll need a powdered biscuit mix (such as Bisquick) to make the topping. You can usually buy it in small amounts, packaged with just enough for 1 or 2 recipes, if you don't want a whole box-full.
