Before you start

A food processor and slow cooker are needed to make this recipe.

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a pan over low heat. Stir in the almonds. Toast them, shaking the pan the entire time to prevent them from burning. When you start to "smell" the almonds, add the paprika and cook for 30 seconds more.
  2. Transfer the almonds and paprika to a food processor. Add all the other ingredients, except chicken and tomatoes. Pulse until everything is roughly chopped. Pour the sauce into the ceramic cooking pot, add the chicken and tomatoes. Stir to combine and coat the chicken with the mixture.
  3. Cover the slow cooker with the lid and cook on 'low' for 6-8 h. Alternatively, cook on 'high' for 4-5 h.
  4. Serve the chicken with the sauce. You may garnish with additional chopped parsley.
