Moroccan Chicken: Made on Stove Top, Crock-Pot or Tagine

“Shopping at Ikea I bought a Tangine because it looked so cool! Don't worry, if you don't have one - you can just make this on the stove top. If you want it to be ready when you come home from work, just toss it into a crockpot (slow cooker) P.S. you can also make this with Lamb or Pork if you want to!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Super Easy:
  2. Olive Oil in pan on high heat.
  3. Add chopped onions and sautee a little.
  4. Add chicken.
  5. Mix a bit.
  6. Reduce heat and add all the spices and mix a little.
  7. Count to 60 so let the spices warm up a little.
  8. After 1 minute has passed, add chicken stock, prunes and rasins and stir a bit.
  9. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes.
  10. Uncover, stir a bit again and simmer another 5 minutes until the stock has reduced a bit and it's not so runny.
  11. If you are using couscous, put the cous cous on a serving plate first then pour this chicken dish over the couscous which will absorb any loose liquid.
  12. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------.
  13. If using a crockpot (slowcooker).
  14. Dump everything in the same order as above: oil, onions, chicken, then spices, fruit, cover with stock and slow cook for anywhere from 4 hours (ideal) to no more than 10. The longer it cooks, the better it will be - but it WILL dry out after 10 hours unless you a little extra chicken stock.
  15. Side Dish ideas:
  16. Polenta.
  17. Enjoy!
