The flavors in Chicken Marrakesh are amazing! Yet even though the taste is fantastic this is a very easy recipe to follow. You cook it in the Crock pot or slow cooker. It comes out as a very thick stew and goes great served with flat bread.

Normally we’re not big fans of sweet potatoes, they’re just too sweet for our taste. But in this recipe their sweetness is tempered by the other ingredients and that sweet taste helps bring out the flavor of everything else. That interaction creates a perfect way to bring out the tastes of all the ingredients.

Since this stew has so much flavor it’s really nice to have something with a more neutral taste, like flat bread, to eat on the side. The flat bread is also great for scooping bites out. As with most of our recipes, we went light on the salt since we prefer to taste the other ingredients instead of just tasting salt. If you prefer more salt go ahead.
