I am so excited about this recipe!  This is a crock pot recipe and I love being able to use my crock pot.  I first saw this recipe at A Year of Slow Cooking you can follow this link to check out her recipe.  I modified it a bit.  I loved the recipe she had on her site but we happen to have the authentic Ethiopian spice BerBer in our house so I began with the recipe she had and then did a bit of searching online for other recipes and took a little from each recipe I found and came up with my own version of this soup.  Doro Wot is an Ethiopian stew normally eaten with a bread called Injera - my husband just used tortillas, I just ate it as a soup.  At first I was scared the kids wouldn't eat it because the BerBer is spicy but I let them try it and wouldn't you know..they loved it!  Sweet Girl had seconds!!  Hubby spent a few years in Ethiopia when he was growing up so I was very excited to make this for him.  Here is my recipe but if you can't find the BerBer the recipe at A Year of Slow Cooking looks great too! Enjoy!!

1       (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 1/2  pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1/4    cup fresh lemon juice
2       tablespoons butter
3       large onions, diced
1       tablespoon BerBer
1/4    teaspoon fenugreek
1/8    teaspoon nutmeg
1       tablespoon Paprika
1       tablespoon garlic
1       tablespoon ginger (I buy the tubed ginger in the produce section)
2       cups water
8       hard-boiled eggs (peeled, to add later)

Empty your tomatoes into the slow cooker and add the chicken,onions, butter, lemon juice, spices and the water. Cover and cook on high for 5-6 hours or low for 7-8 hours.  Serve with a peeled hard boiled egg and tortillas if you'd like.
