When I decided to try one of Campbell's slow cooker sauces I expected something that tasted little bland. Maybe something that's a little bit more in the vein of a stew. When I try the Moroccan Spiced Stew I was thoroughly blown away.
When I was looking at the selection of sauces they had in the store I was drawn to this particular one because it involved chicken. That appealed to me because my wife and I had a lot of chicken in our freezer at the time and finding new ways to use it seem like a good idea. Neither of us are very big on olives and when I saw that the sauce did contain olives I was a bit skeptical at first. My opinion started to change the minute I walked home and smelled the aroma that the slow cooker was producing from the result of the sauce simmering with the chicken all day. It smelled delicious.
And the taste was in that much different. What's great about this particular meal is that it has a good amount of spice it taste like something I go to a Thai restaurant or a Mediterranean restaurant and order off the menu. We served ours with the rice which of course means added carbs. But if you wanted you could easily use it cauliflower rice substitute or just have a plain like a stew. Sauce doesn't lack any flavor. My wife and I even used some low-carb tortillas to dip into the stew and act almost like pita bread. The great thing about this two for us is we really didn't even taste the olives that much. It blends into the flavor of the sauce so well that it's not a hindrance.
This is a perfect meal to have on a cold day you don't want to do a lot of cooking. You could do it on a hot day as well and it will be just as delicious but there's something about the spiciness of the sauce going along with the chicken that really set the tone for the rest of your evening.
We are definitely going to check out some other slow cooker sauces by Campbell's. This one was a hit and incredibly easy to do. The fact that my wife was able to make this meal by herself at home while handling our newborn is a testament to that. Any moms out there know that cooking a meal with a baby is no easy task.
