Tangerine Chicken Tagine
My family and friends love foods from around the world, especially Moroccan entrees, so I created this flavorful dish. Cooking it in the slow cooker keeps each morsel moist and rich in flavor. —Brenda Watts, Gaffney, South Carolina

Soooooo good! Its asian meets indian cuisine. I served it over white rice. I used chicken thighs instead of a whole chicken but it turned out great. Needed some spice though! Like red pepper flakes.
