Crockpot Chicken Tagine

A couple of month ago I was looking for a new recipe for my crock pot and I found this wonderful tagine recipe from dinner-mom.
I did not use the flour, used real garlic and added 2 zucchini. I did use frozen chicken and onions, miam.


Crockpot Chicken Tagine
Yield: 4-6 servings

Boneless, skinless chicken thighs cook in a spicy, fragrant broth that is full of carrots, onions, raisins and apricots. Serve over couscous and with some bread to sop up all the goodies.


2 cups chicken broth (low-salt)
2 Tablespoons tomato paste
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 Tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons garlic salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of fat
2 carrots, sliced (about 1 cup)
1 small onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup dried apricots, sliced

Combine the first nine ingredients in a crock-pot.
Add the chicken.
Top the chicken with onions, carrots, raisins and apricots.
Cook on high or 4-6 hours or on low for 8-10 hours.

This is a make ahead and freeze meal. Add all of the ingredients to a ziplock bag. Seal tightly, removing excess air and place in a second ziplock back for storage. Defrost completely and cook according to directions.
