  • 600 grams / 1 lb. Chicken Thigh Fillet
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour
  • 4 tablespoons Morrocan seasoning (I use masterfoods)
  • 1 medium Brown onion
  • 2 teaspoons crushed garlic
  • 2 teaspoons Minced ginger paste
  • ½ Red chilli (diced, seeds removed)
  • ½ cup / 120 ml Chicken stock
  • 400 grams / 14 oz. Tin diced tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons Tomato paste
  • 100 grams / 3.5 oz. Pearl cous cous
  • 50 grams / 2 0z. green beans


  • Preparation: In a medium size freezer bad, place the plain flour and 2 tablespoons of Moroccan seasoning. Toss and coat the chicken and then shake off excess.
  • Either in a frypan, or in your slow cooker, brown off the chicken pieces. Place to the side once browned
  • Add onion, ginger, garlic, chilli and seasoning and cook until onion softens
  • Add half the stock and bring to the boil
  • Slow Cooker (or casserole dish with lid if cooking in oven):  Add the chicken, onion mixture, the tin tomatoes, tomato paste, remaining chicken stock, and remaining 2 tablespoons of seasoning
  • Gently stir sauce through to cover the chicken
  • Cook in your Slow Cooker on low for 6 hours and serve with pearl cous cous, green beans, and a slice of lime. Garnish with chopped parsley.  Alternatively, you can cook in the oven for 60 to 70 minutes at 180 degrees C/350 degrees F.


  • If you don't have a slow cooker, you can make this recipe using the same preparation method on the stovetop, and then bake for 90 minutes in an oven at 180 degrees C.
  • If sauce is to liquid, add a tablespoon of cornflour mixed in a tablespoon of water and add to the sauce.  Stir to thicken.
