Chicken & Lemon Tagine with Almonds, Sultanas & Couscous


  • Brown Sultanas
  • Garlic and basil green olives
  • Spring greens
  • Onion
  • Chicken stock pot
  • Tumeric
  • Flaked almonds
  • Couscous
  • Fresh coriander
  • Preserved lemon
  • Skinless & boneless chicken thighs
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  • Olive Oil


  • Preheat the oven to 240C/fan 220C/gas 9. Halve, peel and finely slice the onion. Halve the olives. Combine the stock pot and turmeric with 250ml of boiling water, stir to combine. Quarter the preserved lemon, remove the pith and finely slice.
  • Scatter the onions, olives, 1/2 of the preserved lemon (use all of it if preserved lemon is your thing), almonds and sultanas onto a small-medium ovenproof dish.
  • Nestle the chicken thighs over the top of everything. Then pour over the turmeric-infused stock and paint the tops of the chicken with a little oil. Season with salt and pepper and place in the oven for 20mins. Fill your kettle with water and boil.
  • Meanwhile, place the couscous in a medium heatproof bowl, season with salt and pepper. Add 1tbsp of olive oil and pour over 250ml of boiling water. Cover with a plate and leave to sit for 5-6mins to soak up the liquid. Once cooked, fluff up using a fork.
  • While the couscous is soaking, shred the spring greens crosswise into 2cm strips and place in a colander over a large saucepan. Pour over the remaining just boiled water, cover with a lid or a plate and then leave to steam for 3-5mins, until wilted. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Roughly chop the coriander leaves and stalks. Serve the couscous onto plates, top with the spring greens then spoon the tagine over everything. Finish with the coriander.

Heelys Rolls Into Spring With New Collection

Heelys, the original two-in-one wheely shoe launched in 2000, is preparing for the upcoming Easter holidays with its new spring collection. Ideal for encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle, the stylish designs will ensure kids (big and small) will roll through the holidays with ease.

The collection consists of 19 designs, including three brand new Heelys shapes: Reserve Ex, Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood. The Reserve Ex has a basketball shoe style, while the Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood tap into the current Y2K trend for an extra chunky sole.

Match your Heelys to your mood, with designs split across two main aesthetics – a darker colour scheme vs. a lighter, spring-inspired palette. Think camouflage print, graffiti text and paint drips contrasting with pastel colours, tie-dye, metallic laces, foil and rainbow print.

Available in the UK and Europe on the Heelys website and retailers, the collection is available in sizes C12-7 across single or two-wheeled styles. RRPs range from £49.99 to £69.99.
