Slow cooker moroccan chicken
I have been meaning to use my slow cooker much more often lately. I started today with this slow cooker Moroccan chicken recipe that was to die for. Not only it was super tasty but extremely easy to make.
If you don’t owned a slow cooker I suggest you purchase one. It is extremely easy to use, kind of inexpensive, and very convenient. This one is one of my favorites slow cooker models. I have actually taken it to gatherings since it closes hermetically and there is no spills. Love it!
Anyhow, onto the recipe now.
Like many of you guys know, I am in school and on top of other things going on in my life, I am redoing my entire house since it flooded. Talk about having management time issues. My life is pretty much scheduled to the minute so I have no time to spare and waste. Very stressful to say the least.
This type of recipes is what I like making lately. Super easy, and convenient. This slow cooker moroccan chicken is super hearty, filling and delicious. I love using all the Moroccan type of spices as well as one of my favorite natural sauces, Mina Harissa. This sauce is made with top of the line ingredients, all real ingredients I must add, and it is extremely versatile. You can add add this sauce pretty much onto anything that requires some spicy component. I also made this Harissa beef burgers the other day and they were juicy and extremely tasty. If you haven’t tried this Mina Harissa sauce you should try it soon. Check out their website for their sauce varieties.
Well I hope you get to make this slow cooker Moroccan chicken recipe soon. Like I said, it is very easy and super tasty.

- 6 organic chicken drumsticks
- 6 organic chicken thighs
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 tomatoes, quartered
- 3 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1/3 cup vegetable or chicken stock
- 2 tbs Red Mina Harissa
- 2 tsp coriander powder
- 2 tsp cumin powder
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
- 1/2 tsp cardamon powder

- 2 tbsp tomato puree
- 15 oz canned chick peas
- 15 oz pitted green olives
- 1/4 cup golden raisins
Mixed the spices, cumin, coriander, cardamon and cinnamon. Toss the chicken in the spices. Add the chicken to the slow cooker followed by the rest of the ingredients reserving the chick peas, olives and raisins for later on.
Set the slow cooker on high and cook the chicken for 3 hours. After the 3 hours add the rest of the ingredients. Cook for another hour on high.

NOTE: I added 3 tsp of arrowroot powder mixed with two tablespoons of water to thicken my sauce the last 2-3 minutes of cooking. You can also use cornstarch instead of arrowroot powder.
