Peel the potatoes and cut into wedges. Press the juice of 2 oranges into a bowl. Slice the remaining 2 oranges in wedges, leave the peel on it. Peel the red onion and cloves of garlic, then finely slice.

Mix 2 tablespoons smoked paprika powder, 1 tablespoon turmeric, 1/2 tablespoon nutmeg and 1/2 tablespoon powdered ginger into the bowl with the orange juice. Then mix the finely sliced garlic through the mixture.

Coat the inside of the tagine with olive oil. You can use a silicone brush or some kitchen paper for this. Add in the finely sliced red onion on the bottom of the tagine. Place 4 chicken legs diagonally of each other in the middle of the tagine.
