Slow Cooker Moroccan Chicken Recipe

This delightful main dish is flavored with pickling spice that brings the essence of North Africa and with dates and almonds that bring sweetness and texture. This slow cooker version begins with sprinkling the chicken parts with turmeric-seasoned flour for rich, golden color, then adds all remaining ingredients at one time.
