Moroccan Chicken (Crockpot)

"This was published in a women's magazine over 10 years ago and has been one of my stand-by favorites of all time! Served over couscous completes this delicious meal. *I have best success using low heat, all day cooking with this."

    This middle eastern, richly nuanced dish has been a family favorite for about 10 years. My copy, a worn & faded page was stained and getting difficult to read. I was thrilled to find it here on this site having lost the original source of the recipe.

    This was very easy and we liked it alot. I did not use eggplant and used chicken breasts instead of thighs. Thanks!

    Really enjoyed this dish. Very healthy and flavorful, and easy to throw together. I wasn't able to find eggplant (not a huge fan anyway), so I subbed cauliflower. Also, used canned plum tomatoes so ommitted the tomato paste. Served over toasted couscous and even my picky kids gave it a go. Thanks for a crockpot recipe I look forward to making again!

    My family raved over this dish! It was the first request when I asked what they'd like for dinner this week. I followed the recipe exactly and thought it was perfect. Thanks!
    I love this dish. I threw it in the crock pot, went to work, stirred in the peanut butter and served it over cous cous, Admittedly, I did use a bit less PB than called for, and forgot the raisins till I got home This recipe gets five stars for me: Clear instructions make the recipe easy to make, lots of flavor, healthy as can be, family likes it! Thanks Jules
