Cut the chicken into 8 pieces on the bone and rub all over with the salt.

Heat the olive oil in a tagine or large, lidded frying pan over medium-high heat and fry the chicken until well browned. Remove from the pan.

Add the onions, garlic and ginger and fry until fragrant. Then add the cumin, paprika, cinnamon, mango chutney, apricots, tomatoes, sweet potato and chicken stock and bring to a simmer.

Return the chicken to the liquid, cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Adjust for seasoning.

Allow to rest for 10 minutes, then scatter with the parsley and coriander and serve with couscous.
