Instructions Checklist
  • Combine turmeric, ginger, coriander, salt, cumin, and cayenne pepper in a small cup. Rub mixture over chicken and let sit at least 30 minutes.

  • Combine chickpeas, diced tomatoes, artichoke hearts, carrots, garlic, and cinnamon stick in the bottom of a 6- to 7-quart slow cooker.

  • Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and brown, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to the slow cooker, bone-side-up. Add onion to the same skillet. Saute over medium-high heat until onions have taken on a yellow color from turmeric and are starting to brown on the edges, about 5 minutes. Transfer to the slow cooker.

  • Cover the slow cooker and cook on Low for approximately 2 hours.

  • Place green beans and bell pepper over chicken. Cover and cook approximately 3 hours more.

  • Meanwhile, boil 3 cups of water in a saucepan. Add couscous and stir. Cover the pot and turn off the heat. Let sit until water is absorbed and couscous is tender, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Place hot couscous on each plate and top with chicken and vegetables. Spoon juices from the slow cooker over each serving.

My husband and I loved this! We followed the recipe exactly except for when we added the green beans and red pepper; we stirred that in to get in and under the chicken and other ingredients. We served it over brown ride. Delicious! Read More

I scaled this down to 4 servings and used BLSL thighs and parsley in place of the cilantro. Those were the only changes that I made. One thing I'd recommend is stirring the green beans in rather than just laying them on top of the chicken. Ours were not cooked enough even after having been in the slow cooker for 3 hours because they were sitting on top of the chicken rather than in the juices below. My family did not care for this sorry. Read More

We loved this. We used boneless chicken breast and did not use chickpeas. We used rice instead of couscous due to a wheat allergy. The flavor was wonderful. We will definitely make this again. Read More
