Miryam's original recipe

Yield: 8 servings

Total Time: 4 hours



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.

Serve over some brown rice, couscous or quinoa.

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.

  1. Love moroccan flavours, definitely a dish I need to make.. this slow cooked chicken looks SO incredibly delicious!

  2. Looks delicious! I bet it would be great on broiled fish.

  3. The chicken and beef burgers look wonderful and delicious! I think I would like to try the sauces on roast beef or pork, as well. I’m thinking sandwiches on a crusty roll would be great!

  4. I would try this recipe FIRST, then I would try it on some type of fish!

  5. I would try it on chicken quesadillas, lasagna and cabbage rolls. .

  6. I would use it to add some zing to lamb stew.

  7. Looks awesome other alternatives to crockpot ???

  8. THis looks delicious and cant wait to try it

  9. THis looks delicious and cant wait to try it in the next day or two

  10. Couscous is not gluten free. Your sentence including it with quinoa and brown rice is incorrect. Only the other two are GF.

  11. I made this and it was delicious! My husband said maybe next time just use the breast tenders and thighs and not the legs. What do you think about how that would affect the recipe and how would you reapportion tender/thighs? Maybe 2 lbs of tenders and 9 thighs? Thanks for the great recipe :)!! 

    • I don’t think the recipe will get affected much. As far as the amt of chicken i don’t think you can go wrong. I think the amt that you are suggesting should be just fine. I am glad you liked it. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  12. I have Harrisa in powder form. How much should I use for this recipe? 

  13. Your picture of the open crock shows more liquid than what I have in mine. Is 1/3 c broth correct?  Where else is the liquid coming from? I still have 90 minutes left and it smells amazing. I cannot wait to try it.
