North African Chicken Recipe - Slow Cooker
1 whole chicken, cut into 8 pieces, skin removed
2 cups chicken broth
4 carrots, washed and slice
2 medium onions, cut in half, sliced thinly
1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped
1/2 cup raisins
1/4 cup tomato paste
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons flour
3 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon vegetable oil or cooking spray
3/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/4 teaspoon salt
cooked, hot rice
Add onions, carrots and garlic to slow cooker. Season chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Rub the seasoning into the chicken well.
Add chicken pieces to slow cooker. Sprinkle raisins and apricots over chicken evenly. In a bowl add and whisk together chicken broth, lemon juice, flour, ginger, cinnamon, cumin and tomato paste. Pour mixture over chicken, raisins and apricots.
Place top on slow cooker. Let cook on low for 5-6 hours or high for 4-5 hours. Serve over hot rice. I like to serve this with naan bread or maybe batbout (similar to pita bread). Enjoy.
