Slow-Cooker Moroccan Chicken
What's your Take?
Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low

Slightly sweet and exotic, your family will love this Moroccan Chicken! Inspired by an Apricot Chicken Tagine I once had, this slow-cooker meal is one of my families favorites. It takes no time at all to prepare as it's one of those "throw in a pot" recipes and as it's made in a slow cooker, it will be ready once you walk in the door after a busy day. That's a win in my book.
