Here’s how to make flavorful Moroccan chicken tagine in less time than it would take to order it in a restaurant. Spend 15 minutes in the morning preparing all the ingredients, throw it in a slow cooker, stir well, go to work (or whatever you do during the day), come home and eat! I find it so welcoming to smell a home cooked meal when I walk in the door at then end of the day. A Moroccan tagine is a traditional dish of the Mediterranean Diet named after the earthen pot that is used to cook it in. Making a tagine in a slow cooker (crock pot) creates a very similar tasting dish to the original earthenware pot. An advantage of making this at home is that you will save a lot of money over ordering it at a restaurant.
Serve with couscous, rice or sourdough bread and a side of garlicky greens sautéed in olive oil.
