This stew is rich in color and flavor. I just love how it all goes into the crockpot and 6 hours later – the most wonderful hearty delectable dish. We’re not big on beef in this house, so I simply used chicken breast instead. It’s a long ingredient list, but it all dumps into the crockpot quite easily.

Moroccan chicken stew (inspired and adapted from Alice in Paris loves Art and Tea)

1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces

1/4 cup AP flour

1 large red onion, chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 parship, chopped

1 large carrot, chopped
