Moroccan Shredded Chicken - Gluten-Free

Ok, so I realize the picture you see blow is VERY boring.  I know.  But you know what?!  This is real life in our house.  Some nights, this is as "fancy" as it gets!  We're a real family, on the go and honestly, sometimes dinner is half eaten and I say "Crud!!  I forgot to take a picture!"  This was close to one of those nights, but I at least got something on a plate and took a picture!

Even though the picture doesn't do it justice, this was DELICIOUS!  I swear!  The spices were PERFECT and WONDERFUL!  You won't be disappointed!  Hopefully you'll have all these spices tucked into your cupboard somewhere and you can throw this together!  It's easy peasy!

Servings: 4-6

3 lbs. boneless skinless chicken
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. turmeric
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 cup no sodium chicken stock 

Mix the cinnamon, paprika, ginger, turmeric, cumin, salt and pepper together.

Place the chicken into your crock, then sprinkle the spice blend over the top. Add in the chicken stock. (Mine was frozen but it makes no difference!)

Cook on LOW for 5 hours or on HIGH for 2.5 hours.
Shred and mix back through the juices in the slow cooker.

Serve over rice, or however you choose.
