Chicken and Chickpea Tagine

We received a new slow cooker for Christmas, so we have been putting the appliance through its paces. For those who are interested, the slow cooker is a 7-quart model made by All-Clad®, and the reason for replacing our old slow cooker is that the new model has a specially-designed cast aluminum insert. That insert can be used on the stove top for frying/braising ingredients before setting the insert back in its normal housing as a traditional slow cooker. Eureka! One of our principal objections to many slow-cooker recipes was eliminated; namely, that we had to dirty another pot or pan before transferring cooked ingredients to the slow cooker!

 Here’s a great example that takes advantage of the new slow cooker’s capabilities. The recipe comes from the December 2013 issue of Cooking Light. Here is the link. We served the dish over couscous, but rice, noodles, or other grains would be just as delicious. Hope you like this slow-cooker version of a North African recipe as well as we did!
