What is Ras el Hanout?

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!

Can You Make This in a Dutch Oven?

Of course, this dish is done in the slow cooker, but you could use a Dutch oven and cut the cooking time down.

How to Serve Stewed Chicken Thighs

This would be great served over cauliflower rice, roasted sweet potato, butternut squash or just plain in a bowl, topped with ripe avocado.
