Slow-cooked and flavorful, this dish is superb served over the curried couscous available on store shelves! We like it spicy.

Directions

  1. Place the chicken, onions, apricots, and raisins into a slow cooker. In a bowl, whisk together the chicken broth, tomato paste, lemon juice, flour, ginger, cumin, cinnamon, black pepper, curry powder, and cayenne. Pour the mixture over the chicken in the cooker. Cover, set the cooker to High, and cook 2 1/2 hours; or set the cooker to Low and cook for 5 hours.
  2. Place the couscous into a saucepan, stir in the boiling water, cover, and let stand until the water is absorbed and the couscous is tender, about 5 minutes. Fluff the pasta with a fork. Scoop onto plates, and serve with chicken tagine.
  3. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Great flavor, but next time I am using chicken thighs not chicken breasts. Thighs are much more suited to low and slow cooking. The chicken breasts got really dry. Also, give this a stir once in awhile as it stews in the slow cooker. All that sweetness has a tendency to burn if your slow cooker gets hot spots. I will definitely make this again (with thighs!).

Love this Moroccan dish, can also be made with lamb! I've never made mine in a slow cooker before, only on the stove and this turned out just as good! I did add; 1 tablespoon paprika, 1/2 teaspoon turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon coriander and 1 tablespoon of honey. I also added zucchini, carrot, yellow squash, and garlic to the couscous. I only gave it 4 stars, because I did add different seasonings.
