Takes: 25 mins to prepare and 45 mins to cook
50ml olive oil
1 medium chicken, jointed with larger pieces halved
3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
25g whole almonds, blanched
125g seedless green grapes
2tsp ground cinnamon
2tsp ground cumin
1tsp ground coriander
400ml chicken stock

Heat the olive oil in a large casserole dish or tajine over a moderate heat until hot. Sear the pieces of chicken with seasoning until golden in colour all over. Remove from the pan, then reduce the heat and add the sweet potatoes, almonds and grapes to the dish.
Cover with a lid and cook for 6-7 minutes until the sweet potatoes starts to soften. Sprinkle over the ground spices at this point and stir well. Return the pieces of chicken to the pan then cover the mixture with the stock. Bring to a simmer, cover with a lid and cook for 20-25 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
Adjust the seasoning of the tajine using honey, salt and pepper. Remove from the heat and garnish with the salad cress before serving.
