    Amped up the spice blend and loved this, will make again. Used 2-3x the cumin and garlic. Also added onion powder, ginger powder, coriander, cinnamon and cloves.

    Mine came out tasteless and the chicken was in shreds! If I could get over the shredded mealy taste of the chicken it might have been good.

    After reading other reviews, I used the crock pot and chicken breasts (since that's what I had in the freezer). I put carrots and onions in the bottom of the crock pot with 2 cups of water (I was afraid of the meat getting dry) and seasoned the carrots with salt and pepper. Since someone said the recipe was bland, I added some ground coriander and onion powder to the seasoning. I followed the rest of the recipe and added the raisins, almonds, and cilantro. It was okay. My boyfriend didn't compl

    If you don't ramp up the spices, you will be disappointed. I made this in my oven and it was pretty drab. Granted, I did not have the raisins to add. I still think it needs more umph. Also, in the oven, by adding the 1 cup of water, it really came out more like a soup. The dish has potential, but needs a lot of tinkering to make it more flavorful. The chicken and carrots were not at all dry, they just lacked enough flavor.

    Seriously, I don't understand how many people enjoyed this recipe. I just made it and it was a total disaster! The chicken was dry and flavourless, the carrots were mushy and brown. The whole thing was inedible! I have always said this website never fails; turns out I was wrong this time around.

    I've been meaning to review this recipe for like a year! This is one of my go to recipes especially in the fall and winter. I make t in the morning slowcooker style and it is ready when I return home.. I do add a few other spices: (1/2 tablespoon of each) curry, clove, and ginger. I also up the cumin to 1/2 tablespoon from 1/2 a teaspoon. It comes out amazing and super flavorful, pairing it with couscous is ideal!

    This is delicious! Perfectly spiced with a great balance of interesting flavors. The raisins make it amazing. I served it with a lentil and rice pilaf, and white sangria.

    I've made this 3 times in the slow cooker now and it's on my menu plan for this week again. We waited a couple months because we ate it every week there for a while and decided we needed a break! Now I can't wait to make it again. I make it exactly as written every time and serve it over couscous. I can taste it now. So good! Don't worry about there being no liquid. It's fine, I promise! My boyfriend LOVES this. Best Martha recipe I've tried and I love them all! P.S. Toast the almonds!

    I made this and it was great! I used boneless skinless chicken thighs. I think it might was been meant to use with the bone but it didn't affect the end result. I will repeat what others have said in the fact that the almonds, raisins and cilantro make the dish.
