Slow Cooker Recipe For Spiced Chicken Stew With Carrots

Sunday Slow Cooker: Spiced Chicken Stew With Carrots

Since most of you eat chicken a couple times a week, I thought I'd share a really basic slow cooker recipe that produces solid results.

This spiced carrot and chicken stew takes inspiration from the slow-braised tagines of North Africa, with flavors like cinnamon, cumin, cilantro, and golden raisins.

If you aren't crazy about chicken thighs, you can use chicken breasts. Serve over couscous or rice pilaf. Want the recipe? Then keep on reading.

What is the cooking liquid? Is it just the juice that comes out of the chicken or do you use a broth?
