I really struggled with what to name this! I should just call it “Delicious Chicken” and leave it at that!
The ingredient list is pretty simple, but the one thing you’ll want to do ahead of time is make the mixture of Ras el Hanout, a Middle Eastern/North African spice blend. I followed Melissa’s recipe from her amazing blog, and it turns out, I had all the spices on hand anyway! The Ras el Hanout gives this dish a smoky, amazing flavor but honestly, it would taste pretty darn good with regular old garlic, salt and pepper! Of course, this dish is done in the crock pot, but you could use a dutch oven and cut the cooking time down.
- 2.5 lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs (trimmed of all visible fat)
- 6 cloves of garlic
- 3 large red bell peppers
- 1 large green bell pepper
- 1 large yellow onion
- 3 ripe roma tomatoes
- 2 jalapeño peppers
- 3 Tbsp Ras el Hanout spice mixture
- 1 Tbsp tomato paste
- 1-15 oz. can of diced tomatoes (I like Muir Glen organic fire-roasted)
- Coconut oil
