This make-ahead slow cooker Moroccan chicken stew recipe will be your new favorite cozy winter meal. Includes a vegan variation, too, if you’re not into the meat!
Get pumped – it’s slow cooker time. I’ve had requests for more slow cooker recipes here on the blog and I’m excited to share this new favorite recipe for slow cooker Moroccan chicken stew with you today!
Matt and I have been enjoying the leftovers from this recipe all week. It’s so good – warm and comforting and packed with veggies. If you’re vegetarian/vegan, the recipe below also includes a delicious vegan option, so don’t X out of this post just yet! 🙂
I love slow cooker recipes because the work is all done up front, and once you’ve tossed all your ingredients into the slow cooker all you have to do is wait. Go to work, take a yoga class, run errands, or simply hang out – and a few hours later your meal is ready and waiting.
This dish requires some veggie chopping up front but it’s worth it, trust me. The olives, apricots, and spices are what gives it a fun Moroccan-ish flair!
Once everything is chopped and prepped, all you do is toss all the ingredients into the slow cooker (FYI this is the slow cooker I have and love), stir it up, set the timer, and get ready to eat! The final step is to shred the chicken just before eating. That’s it!
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we have!
Serve over rice, quinoa, or couscous, with some fresh cilantro and additional chopped olives and toasted almonds if you’re into it. Either way – enjoy!
