Slow-Cooker Chickpea Tagine

“While traveling through Morocco, my wife and I fell in love with the complex flavours of the many tagines we tried. Resist the urge to stir this dish too much, as it will break down the veggies. Add shredded cooked chicken in the last 10 minutes, or serve with grilled fish.” —Raymond Wyatt, West St. Paul, Minnesota
