Slow Cooker Chicken Marrakesh


I have been making this Moroccan-style recipe for years. It’s so easy to make, it has become a tradition in our household.

Original recipe makes 8 servings


1 onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 large carrots, peeled and diced
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into 2-inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon salt
