This is a recipe that we learned during our recent class on Mediterranean cooking. This recipe can be cooked in the oven or in a crock pot (both directions are included below).
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl, stir together tomato paste, honey, molasses, Dijon mustard, and spices. On top of the stove, in a large Dutch oven (or covered cast-iron pot), add olive oil and sauté chicken pieces until no longer raw on the outside. Add vegetables to chicken and then spice mixture. Stir well. Cover and put in oven. Bake for 1 hour, stirring at halfway point. At 1 hour, stir and recover. Turn down temperature to 300 degrees F and continue to cook for another hour.
Crock Pot version:
In a skillet, sauté chicken in olive oil until no longer raw on the outside. Add all ingredients, including chicken and 1/4 cup water to slow cooker. Stir well. Cook on high for 4 hours and then on low for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
