This past weekend was Canadian Thanksgiving and we were fortunate enough to have our good friends Christopher and Matthew from Chicago join us for dinner. Usually, a visit from them includes a trip to a restaurant, but this time I insisted that I prepare dinner. It wasn't just because I needed to add a photo of my chicken and tomato tajine to the already existing recipe. That was just a bonus. We usually only get together once a year so the intimacy of our dining room was much more conducive to good conversation, and we had so much to catch up on!

Christopher isn't fond of spicy foods and Matthew avoids mushrooms and dark poultry, so I made the tajine exclusively with chicken breasts and opted to not serve jalapeno pickled mushroom as a side dish.
