"Slow-cooked and flavorful, this dish is superb served over the curried couscous available on store shelves! We like it spicy."

1 3/4 pounds
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1 inch pieces
onions, thinly sliced
coarsely chopped dried apricots
1 1/4 cups
low-sodium chicken broth
1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/2 teaspoons
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 in awhile as it stews in the slow cooker. All that sweetness has a tendency to burn if your slow cooker gets hot spots. I will definitely make this again (with thighs!).
This did not do it for me. The combination of spices added some pepperiness, but no real heat or flavor, and just tasted odd with the sweetness of the apricots. Somehow with all those spices, it still tasted bland. I added some paprika, more cumin, and some honey to try to brighten up the taste, but it still tasted blah to us. Wouldn't make this one again.
Love this Moroccan dish, can also be made with lamb! I've never made mine in a slow cooker before, only on the stove and this turned out just as good! I did add; 1 tablespoon paprika, 1/2 teaspoon turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon coriander and 1 tablespoon of honey. I also added zucchini, carrot, yellow squash, and garlic to the couscous. I only gave it 4 stars, because I did add different seasonings.
Very easy to make and super delicious. My family loved it!
This was easy to prepare and quite deicious. I will consider adding potatoes or another vegetable next time to give it more substance. Overall we were all quite pleased with 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 think will sure try the thighs next time.
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 also included the curry powder and cayenne pepper. While it cooked for 5 hours, I kept hoping it would taste as good as it smelled, and it did not disappoint!
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 nice but I left out the cayenne.
