Slow Cooker Chicken Tagine

21:56 Posted by Dhaval Bhandari
This is chicken with a lot goin’ on! Flavors come at you from all directions in this Moroccan-inspired dish, which is traditionally slow-cooked in a heavy clay pot called a tagine. In my kitchen, I throw all the ingredients in my slow cooker and let it do the work. Slow cooker chicken tagine has never tasted better with bright hints of lemon, sweet prunes, and the kick of capers and green olives!
