Hello,

Today I present to you this tajine of chicken with olives, mushrooms and carrots that I served to my family yesterday accompanied by vols au vent. An Algerian dish that I really like but unfortunately hubby does not like olives so I put  equal quantities of olives and mushrooms, so that I have my olives and hubby has his mushrooms.. lol .... which leaves the carrots for kids ...
