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

The sauce has potential but needs some salt. The chicken itself was rather flavorless. I think the recipe would be better if the chicken was sautéed with salt and pepper while the sauce simmers. No crockpot. We shall see how it turns out. Read More

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. Read More

Pretty delecious. I would actually omit the the apricots and add some chickpeas. The raisins provide enough sweetness but it does need more substance. I used breasts and it came out fine but I think will sure try the thighs next time. Read More

I only had bone-in chicken so cooked it most of the way then pulled the meat off the bone and threw it back into the slow cooker. It didn't dry out as much as I thought it might. The spices are nice but I left out the cayenne. Read More

We all loved this recipe even my 6 and 5 year old boys! I didn't have any raisins on hand and I used boneless thigh pieces (I always seem to dry out chicken breasts in my slow cooker!). I also included the curry powder and cayenne pepper. While it cooked for 5 hours I kept hoping it would taste as good as it smelled and it did not disappoint! Read More

4 stars for ease and convenience. I suateed my onion first before adding to the crockpot. Bone in chicken works fine too. The bones come right off after cooking. Adding raisins towards the end of the cooking would help as they are quite unappetizing with such a long cooking time. This will be a staple in my chicken recipes. Read More

This was amazing: easy to make and packed with flavor. I replaced the raisins with craisins and added diced zucchini julienned carrots and a spoonful of harissa. Cooked it in a tagine for 1.5 hours at 300 degrees. Delicious! Read More
