Crock Pot Chicken, Carrot & Chickpea Tagine – a delicious, hearty Moroccan stew that is easy to make and will fill your house with an amazing aroma as it simmers away in your slow cooker.
I love Moroccan food, the spices are incredible. One of my favorite Moroccan dishes is the tagine. A tagine is a Moroccan stew, slow-cooked with meat, fruit and vegetables. There are many possible combinations of ingredients and is named after the type of clay pot in which it is traditionally cooked.
A little while ago, I shared one of our family’s favorite tagine recipes, this Slow Cooker Beef & Sweet Potato Tagine. Today, I have a new tagine recipe to share, that is also a family favorite, this delicious Crock Pot Chicken Carrot & Chickpea Tagine.
How to Make Crock Pot Chicken, Carrot & Chickpea Tagine
This delicious Crock Pot Chicken Carrot & Chickpea Tagine is so easy to make. First, place some chicken breasts in the slow cooker. Add in some carrots, chickpeas, raisins, dried apricots, onion, garlic, tomato paste and some spices including cumin, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice and cloves. These spices go so well together and give the chicken and vegetables a wonderful flavor.
Pour chicken broth over the mixture in the slow cooker. Put the lid on and set it to either low or high temperature, and that’s it. In about four to eight hours, depending on the temperature setting, a delicious meal is ready to serve. Your house will definitely smell amazing as this tagine simmers away in the slow cooker.
I like to serve this Crock Pot Chicken, Carrot & Chickpea Tagine over couscous and topped with a dollop of yogurt and a sprinkling of sesame seeds, chopped green onions and grated orange zest. The orange zest, in particular, really makes the flavors pop.
A Blood Orange Juice Cocktail, is the perfect drink to accompany a bowl of this delicious Crock Pot Chicken, Carrot & Chickpea Tagine.
