Keto Slow Cooker Moroccan Chicken + Olives

30 ratings

Slow cooker recipes don’t have to be boring! They can be fun and flavorful like this dish with succulent chicken thighs, green and black olives, carrots and tomatoes! I love how I can literally dump all the ingredients into the slow cooker, mix, walk away and it’s ready by dinnertime! Serve with cauliflower rice.

        Doesn't need the olives too salty.

          I made this on top of the stove. I used powders because I didn’t have seeds. I also through in some mushrooms. This recipe is incredibly delicious and easy!!

          Wasn’t exactly my favorite. We found the cinnamon tomato mixture too intense and unpleasant.

            Currently making this and 10 Black Olives does not equal 5.29 oz. I have small olives and about 30 equals less than 4 oz... However, the green Olives 12 do weigh 107g... maybe the amounts are I have a ton of black olives and 12 green olives

            In the picture of what is in the slow cooker for spices there appears to be 4 different ones. Is there supposed to be curry in this recipe, too? If not what is the other spice.

              Coriander, cinnamon, cumin, black pepper, & kosher salt

            Where on earth are you finding 2 oz chicken thighs? 8 chicken thighs is way more than the 17 oz listed here. Also, use crushed cumin seeds, not whole, unless you like spitting them out later. I don't. I also turned this into a soup. Pulled the chicken bones out and shredded it. Then put in 6 cups of cauliflower rice.

              Me too, Mike. Usually meat without other proteins are about 4 oz. After skinning and deboning I just used 4 oz over the cauliflower rice. I, also, wondered about the weight of the olives compared to the number. It seemed wrong. Oh, I, also used large thighs as that is what I had on hand.

            Followed the recipe but made it in the Instant Pot: Sautéed the thighs 4 at a time in avocado oil, 3 min per side. Poured out the fat, and layered the thighs, tomatoes, carrots, and olives on top. Added about a cup of water. set a small covered pot on top of that filled with frozen cauliflower rice. High Pressure for 15 minutes. Chicken was falling off the bone tender and the cauliflower rice was a little too tender. Rest of the veggies were fine. Will cut the time or the pressure next time. Very flavorful dish. Served it with the Avocado Cucumber Salad from this site. Nice match. Company liked the real as did Hubs. 😉👍

              Thanks!! Just bought an instant pot and appreciate your recipe modifications you suggested. I substituted cauliflower florets and reduced time to 12 minutes. All veggies were fine and meat very tender. My husband and I really liked the flavor. I will definitely use this recipe again. I agree The Avocado Cucumber Salad from this site went well with this recipe.

            Isn’t this a lot of cholesterol?? On the print recipe page it showed 57.0 mg

              Do you drain the olives? Or just dump the juices in as well?

                I find that many of the recipes are for large families. There are only two in our family. Even making 1/2 the recipe can be interesting . I have had to freeze some of the left-overs.

                  The recipe is scalable. Just press - for less servings and + for more.

                This recipe was delicious! I used kalamata olives.

                  This is absolutely delicious. I put it in the crock pot on low overnight. I thought the recipe called for too much olives but it really doesn't. I'll trim a bit of fat off the chicken legs next time though. There's just too much floating on top.

                      Are the green olives the ones in brine like the ones with pimentos or all natural like black canned olives?

                              This is the first receipe I've tried and loved it! I substituted Tumeric and Curry for the Coriander and skipped the carrots. Will have leftovers for lunch at the office tomorrow!
