  1. Sear the Chicken:
  2. Heat oil in a pot over medium-high heat.
  3. Brown the chicken in batches for about 5 minutes, then remove and set it aside.
  4. Sauté the Aromatics:
  5. Add onions to the pot and cook for about 5 minutes until they become translucent.
  6. Stir in grated ginger, minced garlic, ground coriander, ground cinnamon, and ground cumin.
  7. Cook for 1 minute until fragrant.
  8. Simmer with Chicken Stock:
  9. Pour in the chicken stock and scrape the pan to loosen the browned chicken pieces.
  10. Return the browned chicken to the pot, stir, and cover.
  11. Slow Cook the Tagine:
  12. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 45 minutes to an hour, until the chicken is tender.
  13. Add Final Ingredients:
  14. Once the chicken is cooked, add garbanzo beans, chopped kale, apricots, and dates to the pot.
  15. Heat for about 5 minutes until the kale wilts and the ingredients are well combined.
  16. Serve and Enjoy:
  17. Serve your Chicken Tagine with Kale over whole-wheat couscous or your favorite grain for a complete meal.

To save time, you can prepare the first half of the recipe the night before and add the garbanzo beans and other ingredients just before serving.
Feel free to experiment with your favorite dried fruits; dried plums and cranberries also work well in this dish. Bon appétit!
