  • Whisk chicken broth, tomato paste, lemon juice, flour, garlic salt, cumin, ginger, cinnamon, paprika, and pepper together in a bowl. Pour over chicken and vegetables.

  • Cook on High 4 1/2 hours or on Low for 7 1/2 hours. Shred chicken slightly using 2 forks. Continue cooking 30 minutes.

  • Bring 3 cups water to a boil in a saucepan; remove from heat and stir in couscous and butter. Cover saucepan and let stand until water is absorbed completely, 5 to 10 minutes. Fluff couscous with a fork. Serve chicken tagine over couscous.

Cook's Notes:

You can substitute 5 or 6 halved chicken breasts for the 8 chicken thighs.

If you have ras el hanout spice on hand, add a teaspoon to the broth mixture for added flavor.

Really good. I didn’t have quite enough chicken so I added some rinsed canned chickpeas during the last half hour of cooking. Also served with fresh cilantro garnish. Read More
