Moroccan Saffron Chicken is a dish with an eclectic blend of spices that is easy to prepare and oh so aromatic! Like all Moroccan food, it is the blend of spices, and the slow cooking process that makes this a most delightful and flavorful dish.
Cook on low heat for about 1 hour or until chicken is very tender. Baste with the juices during the cooking process. You can add and remove water during the cooking process but the chicken should simmer in liquid but not overflow the dish.
Key tip: Feel free to add or remove some water to allow the meat to simmer in liquid but not overflow.
Here are some notes on using a slow cooker instead of a tagine. Most slow cookers cook on high and this is the correct setting for this dish. You only need to check the chicken with a fork for doneness. It should be very tender and separate very easy.
