We live out in farm country and we have no quality restaurants outside of the town steakhouse. The flavors of this dish are so unique compared with our typical American cooking I felt like I was eating at a fine-eating ethnic restaurant! (Okay...I don't get out too often.) Wonderful flavor!
My only problem was with the time in the crockpot. I work in town and spent 8 hours letting it simmer unchecked/unstirred. Even though I added twice the broth, the chicken was still dry and disintigrated into a texture similar to pulled pork. I recommend cooking this for the first time on a day where you'll be home to keep tabs. Still, I served it over the couscous and it was the best new recipe that I've made for a long while.
This was superb! I forgot the chicken broth so what I did instead is rough chop about 2 roma tomatoes and throw them in with a splash of water (since tomatoes are very traditional for these) and it was GREAT! I served with boxed cous cous and Naan bread. Got rave reviews from my boyfriend. Thank you for sharing it! I will be making it often!
I made this, froze it, then thawed and put it in the crockpot on high for 5 hours. At 3 hours I put in 4 thin sliced carrots, one sliced zucchini, and 1 diced green pepper. I served it over brown rice for a one dish meal and it was a hit! It's not too hot, just right!
Easy and tasty! I made mine in the crockpot and it worked great -- the spices are absolutely delicious. I did not use the oil and I used dried apricots instead of the other dried fruit suggested because that's what I had. I served mine over couscous. I didn't have any problems with dryness that others had. Will make again!
The best. I miss Moroccan food so much since I moved back from Chicago. Try it.
Awesome! I did the crock pot method, and cooked it on low for about 5 hours. I started from frozen chicken breasts (5 oz. portions), and just cut them up (well, more like shredded them) at serving time. I put in 3/4 c. raisins and no prunes. I also added a 14.5 oz. can of diced tomatoes that I "sort of" drained (I drained them a little, but probably not enough to make much difference). Oh, I also deleted the olive oil (and didn't miss it), I used 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, and I didn't have the steak seasoning, so I used some "fire spice chili seasoning" that we got from Breckenridge. This had great flavors, and I will definitely make it again! I served it over toasted and cooked quinoa (Quinoa-Toasted), and I made broccoli too. Thanks for posting it!
This was wonderful! I accidently put in 1 tablespoon instead of 1 teaspoon of turmeric, but it turned out great. The raisins and prunes make it fantastic. I recommend thigh meat for even more flavor...
Little on the hot side for the average person but we were used to it. I added a shredded zuccini and added a little more broth so I'd have more to put on my couscous. You couldn't even taste the zuccini so it doesn't alter the taste at all yet adds a vegie to the meal. Great addition to my cookbook.
This recipe was super yummy! I always throw this in the crock pot before I go to bed around 8am. The only modification I make is I never put the prunes or raisins in because my DH doesn't like those fruits.(Wow the more I write about this, the more I realize my DH is super picky, lol!) My DH always gobbles this down when I make it. I serve it over rice because my DH isn't a couscous fan, but either way it's good!
This was very good! I used the crockpot version. I didn't have coriander or prunes. I left out the oil, dumped everything in the crock and used dried apricots instead of prunes. I served this over wild rice. I love the smoked paprika... this reminds me I need to start using it more often! Made for I Recommend Zaar Tag Game 2010.
