Ras el hanout chicken (1)

From Cookipedia

I bought some ras el hanout (couscous spice) from Birgit at The Spice Shop and have been messing about for ages finding recipes to use it in. It's a wonderful warm spicy mix, reminiscent of Arabian cuisine. I notice that Bart's Spices now produce one, but I doubt if it'll be as good as Birgit's!
