Traditionally, Moroccan tagine is a dish that is slow cooked inside a earthenware pot. But a tagine recipe can very easily be transformed into a slow cooker dish, or in this case an Instant Pot one.

To Make this Chicken Tagine in your Instant Pot, you will need:

  • chicken thighs (boneless, skinless)
  • garlic
  • fresh thyme
  • fresh oregano
  • salt
  • lemon
  • black pepper
  • green olives
  • prunes
  • capers
  • white wine vinegar
  • chicken broth
  • Instant Pot

When it comes to simple recipes, you really can’t get any easier than this one. It all begins by simply placing your chicken inside the Instant Pot.

Next, you will sprinkle in the rest of the seasonings: garlic, salt and pepper. Toss in the quartered olives and chopped prunes, as well as some capers.

Finally, you will add in the liquids, close and seal your Instant Pot. Then press the “manual” button and run it for 35 minutes on high pressure.

Once it has cooked, you can let the pressure come down naturally, or you can do a quick release.

Just look at how gorgeous this dish is! Tagine is often served with couscous or rice, but you might enjoy it with Homemade Cauliflower Rice instead.

Can I Make this In a Slow Cooker?

Yes! To make the chicken tagine in a slow cooker, simply place all of the ingredients inside the cooker instead of an Instant Pot. Cover and cook the tagine on low heat for 5-6 hours. You could also cook it on high for 3-4 hours, if you prefer.
