  1. Place the chicken, onions, apricots, and raisins into a slow cooker. In a bowl, whisk together the chicken broth, tomato paste, lemon juice, flour, ginger, cumin, cinnamon, black pepper, curry powder, and cayenne. Pour the mixture over the chicken in the cooker. Cover, set the cooker to High, and cook 2 1/2 hours; or set the cooker to Low and cook for 5 hours.
  2. Place the couscous into a saucepan, stir in the boiling water, cover, and let stand until the water is absorbed and the couscous is tender, about 5 minutes. Fluff the pasta with a fork. Scoop onto plates, and serve with chicken tagine.

Great flavor, but next time I am using chicken thighs not chicken breasts. Thighs are much more suited to low and slow cooking. The chicken breasts got really dry. Also, give this a stir once...

Very easy to make and super delicious. My family loved it!

Pretty delecious. I would actually omit the the apricots and add some chickpeas. The raisins provide enough sweetness, but it does need more substance. I used breasts and it came out fine, but I...

I only had bone-in chicken so cooked it most of the way then pulled the meat off the bone and threw it back into the slow cooker. It didn't dry out as much as I thought it might. The spices are...

We all loved this recipe, even my 6 and 5 year old boys! I didn't have any raisins on hand and I used boneless thigh pieces (I always seem to dry out chicken breasts in my slow cooker!). I als...

4 stars for ease and convenience. I suateed my onion first before adding to the crockpot. Bone in chicken works fine too. The bones come right off after cooking. Adding raisins towards the end ...

This was amazing: easy to make and packed with flavor. I replaced the raisins with craisins and added diced zucchini, julienned carrots, and a spoonful of harissa. Cooked it in a tagine for 1....
