Preparation steps

1.
Mix the ground spices with some seasoning in a small mixing bowl. Rub the chicken with some of the olive oil and sprinkle over half of the spice mixture, reserving the rest for a garnish.
2.
Heat a large frying pan or casserole dish over a moderate heat until hot. Seal the chicken until golden brown in colour all over, then remove to a plate to one side.
3.
Reduce the heat under the pan/dish and add the remaining olive oil. Brown the onions and garlic in the oil for a few minutes until well coloured.
4.
Transfer to a slow cooker and sit the chicken on top. Cover and cook on a medium setting for 6 hours. After 6 hours, test to see if the juices run clean when the thickest part of the thigh is pierced. If so, the chicken is ready. Spoon everything into a cast iron casserole dish.
5.
Garnish the top of the chicken with the remaining spice mixture and the bay sprig. Serve immediately.
