Ethiopian Slow Cooker Chicken

Rhonda F. in Oklahoma gave us this recipe that uses our Berbere blend. Also known as Ethiopian Chicken Rub, Berbere is a mixture of North African flavors including onion, garlic, allspice and nutmeg. Plus, a little heat! Rhonda suggests adjusting the dish with the cayenne to taste at the end of cooking. We love the addition of cardamom--it's such an unexpected flavor. it really makes the dish!
