(Weight Watchers Friendly Crock Pot Cooking Day 140 )
Reminder: You have ’til Friday (1/21/14) to enter my latest Crock Pot Giveaway!
I had the family over for dinner Friday night.
There were nine of us; 8 adults and 1 munchkin.
For the first time in decades we all live close enough to gather for dinner without traveling great distances across several time zones.
How wonderful is that?
I wanted to make a nice meal with minimal effort so I could enjoy the party too.
So, I decided to break out a package of Campbell’s Moroccan Spiced Stew with Green Olives and Lemon Slow Cooker Sauce and pour it over a bunch of boneless, skinless chicken thighs
Then crossed my fingers that this super easy Slow Cooker Moroccan Chicken would be edible.
Talk about a recipe that’s really hard to screw up. All you do is put the chicken in the slow cooker, pour the sauce over the chicken, cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 7 hours. That’s it.
The package says to use chicken breasts, but I think chicken thighs turn out more moist and tender, so I opted for them instead.
I served this easy slow cooker Moroccan chicken with couscous, roasted asparagus and a simple grated carrot salad.
How did it turn out?
Everyone raved Well, all the adults raved. My 3-year-old grandson preferred the couscous, clearly expressing his disapproval when I ran out of it before he’d had his fill!
The chicken was moist, tender and flavorful with lots of warm spices, sliced green olives, cilantro, and lemon. I sprinkled it with parsley to dress it up a bit and had a squeeze of fresh lemon handy to brighten it up, but didn’t have to use it.
It was simply delicious, proving once again that sometimes the easiest meals are the best ones.
I will definitely be making this again!
I recently spotted the sauce at my 99 Cents store so I’m planning to stock up now that I know how much we like it.
- 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
- 1 pouch (13 ounces) Campbell's Moroccan Stew Slow Cooker Sauce
- Fresh chopped parsley for garnish, if desired.
- Ideal Slow Cooker Size: 6-Quart
- Place chicken in slow cooker.
- Pour Campbell’s Slow Cooker sauce over the chicken.
- Cover and cook on LOW for 6-7 hours.
- Serve sprinkled with fresh chopped parsley, if desired
Variations: Bulk this up with additional vegetables. I think chopped carrots, onions, and cauliflower florets would all work, as would a can of drained garbanzo beans.
If you feel it needs a little "something" and you are not sure what, try a little fresh squeezed lemon juice just before serving.
