Slow Cooker Moroccan Chicken #Recipe | #slowcooker #crockpot

Who doesn’t love coming home to a house wafting with aromatic fall flavors?

That’s the true charm of a slow cooker.

Yes, you can set it in the morning and it cuts out cook time later in the day. Yes, it’s almost impossible to burn things…

Yet the best thing about a slow cooker is the delicious aroma that overwhelms your senses as you walk in the door.

How to Make Slow Cooker Moroccan Chicken #Recipe | #slowcooker #crockpot

Secretly, I used to not like slow cooking. My old slow cooker (the one I got as a wedding gift) had seen better days and was completely unreliable.

So I recently replaced it with this stunning KitchenAid Slow Cooker. My new slow cooker is incredible! It has a 24 hour timer and will switch to the “warm” setting if I forget about it.

I love it so much I decided to dedicate a whole week to slow cookers!

Making Slow Cooker Moroccan Chicken #Recipe | #slowcooker #crockpot

Our first slow cooker recipe this week is Moroccan Chicken. This slow cooker chicken is a great way to get your whole family excited about chicken and vegetables.

Moroccan chicken starts with chicken thighs dusted in aromatic spices. The chicken rests on top of the veggies, dried fruit, and almonds, so that all the juices and spices drip down and work their magic below.

    If i were fortunate enough to win the KitchenAid slow cooker, I would make a brisket with roasted vegetables that has cranberries in the sauce. It is a recipe that my mother used to make and i have not eaten in many years. A truly excellent recipe and quite easy. I have never owned a slow cooker but see that my son and daughter in law use theirs a few times and week and make some wonderful meals with it.

Since she also works full time she swears it is her Kitchen God send. My husband and I are retired, on a fixed income and this would be a wonderful addition. I believe my first meal would be a traditional roasted chicken with veggies. Lots of potatoes, carrots, celery and onions. Yum…can taste it now. :-) Thank you so much for making this generous offer available to a lucky winner. Have a great day and good luck to all.

    I am still using my mother-in-law’s ancient Crockpot, the upright cylindrical model! It works but many of the recipes now are geared to the newer oval designs. This recipe looks good, though for my husband’s tastes I’d leave out the dried fruit (which I love, however). Slow cookers are great for caramelized onions, too–no need to stand over them and stir! Place 6 large onions, sliced 1/4″ thick, in slow cooker, Drizzle wiht olive oil and cook on high 8-10 hours, until onions caramelize to deep brown color. Refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for one month or more.

    In honor of upcoming Fall , I’d probably do a chicken and veggie combo (the Morrocan recipe sounds wonderful), and immediately after that I’d experiment with making home made yogurt. I love to make it, but it’s hard to control the temperature using a double boiler method (my grandmother’s method– kind of very low tech!) Would ove to have this Kitchen Aid slow cooker!

    This recipe sounds amazing. I would cook this slow cooker Moroccan Chicken. On your recipe, it states to cook high for 3-4 hours. However, if I’m at work, is this still possible to make during the week for dinner?

      Hi Candice,

      It says to cook on high for 3-4 hours, or low for 6-8. So you can set it on low and you should be fine to head off to work. :)
