Slow Cooker Chicken & Chickpea Tagine

Tagine or Tajine dishes are Moroccan slow cooked dishes named after the pot they are cooked in. The dishes are typically a stew with a protein, spices, and fruit. Cooking Light had a version with chicken and chickpeas that sounds delicious. It combines both sweet and spicy elements to make a really flavor-filled dish.
