Hello! I want you to know that I had never in my LIFE cooked chicken before I attempted this recipe last night because I wanted to make something tasty for my carnivorous boyfriend. It was hands down the most delicious thing he'd eaten in a very long time (his words not mine) and I was super proud of myself but also so impressed with the recipe! There were a lot of ingredients but it was so straightforward to follow. I love that it has room for ad-libbing because that's what I like best about cooking from a recipe (I added some red pepper in with the shallots, a few tomatoes in with the apricots, and topped with chopped toasted almonds and parsely. I dont know how to not cook a meal with veg, apparently). But anyways this recipe is super smart. All the flavours go together SO WELL. Thanks for showing me I can cook delicious meaty meals with love, once in a blue moon. I feel like a better chef already, and I can't wait to discover more gems on this website 👩‍🍳

DY, this made my whole week 😭😭😭 I am so so happy to hear this incredible review. I'm so glad the recipe was easy to follow and so happy to hear you made it your own!!! I love the idea of peppers and tomatoes in this, plus the parsley must’ve been chef’s kiss! Grateful to have you here 💛💛💛

I just finished eating this. Scrumptious. Thank you. Caroline, what type of apricots do you suggest? I used the common orange dried ones that, I think, have a sulfur preservative but I’m guessing the Turkish apricots might be better. P.S. I drank a Piedmonte Sauvignon Blanc with this dish and it was a lovely compliment.

What a pairing!!! I used the generic store-bought ones that come with the sulfur preservative but I bet Turkish apricot would be so lovely if you can get your hands on them :)

Slow cooked in my slow cooker or in the oven in a dutch oven... till chicken falls off bone :) Bet it works well with thighs too. And Apricots pare exceptionally well with tomatoe sauce, garlic, and pork with capers when the pork is roasted then slow cooked. :) Excellent with rice. Potatoes of any kind, bread or noodles...

I think I would be tempted to add onions and sweet peppers, though.

Super nice idea! I'm going to keep it in mind for winter dishes because with some chicken in the freezer, it's a nice meal from basically all pantry items, including the almond topping - maybe some couscous on the side Thank you Carolina :-)

This was great! we didn't eat all the sauce, probably only half, so I have put it in the fridge to use again. Ended up being a pretty budget friendly dish!

Does this recipe work best with chicken with skin?

Indeed! But if you’re careful not to overcook something like a skinless chicken breast or thighs, everything should be fine :)

Hi! What do you have this served with in the last photo? Thanks! Looking forward to making this :)

What did you serve the chicken with? In the picture it looks like some sort of coleslaw and rice? Do you have recipes or notes on those? :)
