Chunks of boneless chicken breast simmer for hours with sweet potatoes, garbanzo beans, tomatoes, and North African-inspired spices for a hearty dinner that cooks itself while you do other things.

1 onion, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced (optional)
2 large carrots, peeled and diced
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans,
drained and rinsed
2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken
breast halves, cut into 2-inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes

1. Place the onion, garlic, carrots, sweet potatoes, garbanzo beans, and chicken breast pieces into a slow cooker. In a bowl, mix the cumin, turmeric, cinnamon, black pepper, parsley, and salt, and sprinkle over the chicken and vegetables. Pour in the tomatoes, and stir to combine.

2. Cover the cooker, set to High, and cook until the sweet potatoes are tender and the sauce has thickened, 4 to 5 hours.
