Crock Pot Moroccan Chicken

Mongolian BeefHere is a different recipe.  I have made Mongolian Beef, Chinese Fried Rice, to name a few different ethnic recipes, along with a whole lot of “Mexican” ones so making something Moroccan was fun to try!

Here are the ingredients I used. As you can see, there really isn’t a whole lot of them, the Moroccan comes through mainly through the spices, olives and raisins.

I started by browning the chicken breasts in a bit of olive oil in the frying pan.

While it was browning, I washed, peeled and sliced the carrots, peeled and chopped the onion and added them to the bowl of the crock pot with the halved olives and raisins and poured in the chicken broth.

In a small bowl I mixed together the cumin, cinnamon, cayenne and ginger.

I arranged the browned chicken breasts on top of the vegetables in the crock pot and sprinkled the spice mix on top of the chicken.

And then I cooked it on low heat for 8 hours.  I served it over top of egg noodles for their dinner.
