Doro Wot for the Crock Pot!

I modified my Doro Wot recipe for the slow cooker! Obviously, it’s a bit American-ized, but retained some Ethiopian flair, and was super easy.  Bonus:  All 5 members of my family liked it!  That doesn’t happen very often.

2T olive oil
1 large yellow onion, diced
2  six oz cans tomato paste
3c chicken broth
1T fresh garlic
1t black pepper
1T red pepper flakes (or 2t berbere*)
3-4 large chicken breasts
6 hard-boiled eggs (poked with fork)

Put it all in the slow cooker and cook on high 6 hours or low 8-10 hours, or until chicken is done.  Shred chicken coarsely, stir, and let it all cook about 30 more minutes.  Serve with Injera** if available, or with pita bread or naan.

*Berbere is a traditional Ethiopian spice.  I haven’t used it yet, but have heard it’s awesome!
**Injera is Ethiopian Flat Bread.  I tried to make it once and almost caught my kitchen on fire.  I’ve read on other Ethiopian adoption blogs that it’s pretty hard to make in a US kitchen, but you can buy it online or at some multicultural stores.
