At my husband’s Christmas party a few weeks ago, they had a delicious Moroccan Chicken dish. I loved the sweet heat and warm earthy spices that I just had to try it on my own. After a little grocery shopping for a few spices, I decided that today was the day to make this hearty dish.
Tagines in Moroccan cuisine are slow-cooked stews braised at low temperatures, resulting in tender meat with aromatic vegetables and sauce. Since tagines are usually cooked in earthenware over low heat for a long period of time, a slow cooker is a fair replacement for the cooking vessel however, it leads to a few more steps in the cooking process, such as browning the meat first and building the sauce before adding it to the pot.
