Moroccan Chicken

Serves 6

4 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 ½ teaspoons ground ginger
1 ½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Freshly ground black pepper to taste

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts each cut in half crosswise
2 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, excess fat removed
1 big Meyer lemon cut into 8 wedges
1 pound red potatoes halved or quartered if big to start
1 big yellow or white onion cut into 1” chunks
12 dates, pitted and halved
12 green olives, pitted
½ cup fresh parsley, coarsely chopped
½ cup low sodium chicken broth

Mix the spice rub ingredients together in a medium bowl. Add the chicken and coat it with the mixture. Let it sit for about 15 minutes. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in the tagine or clay pot over medium heat and brown the chicken on both sides scraping the leftover marinade into the pot also. Some slow cookers have a removable aluminum insert to allow you to brown the chicken on a burner before slow cooking it. Add everything else. Simmer it covered for about three hours if you are going to eat it the same day or just part of that time if you are going to finish cooking it the next night. There is no one right length of time to cook this dish. Just sample it as you go along. I covered my tagine with plastic wrap to refrigerate it. Leftovers aka “planned overs” can be frozen for a quick already prepared meal another day.
