Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: 2-Ingredient Slow Cooker Moroccan Chicken
(265 calories | *4 WW SmartPoints)
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.
The Skinny on Slow Cooker Moroccan Chicken
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.
According to my calculations, each serving has about 265 calories, *7 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *4 WW Freestyle SmartPoints under the WW Freestyle Plan.

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.
Other Campbell’s Slow Cooker Sauces that I want to try include:
- Hawaiian Luau (with pineapple, mango and bell peppers)
- Tavern Style Pot Roast (with mushrooms and roasted garlic)
Slow Cooker Moroccan Chicken Recipe 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.
