Slow Cooker Moroccan-Style Chicken & Potato Stew

A flavorful crock pot recipe made with chicken drumsticks and Simply Potatoes® slowly cooked in a spicy combination of Moroccan seasonings. If you like a lot of heat in your stew opt for the higher range of ground red pepper and crushed red pepper.

Tips & Substitutions:

* We do not recommend substituting chicken breast in this recipe. Due to the longer cooking time chicken breasts dry out too quickly.
