Apricot Chicken

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by DrGaellon

A rather Moroccan-style chicken dish. Very easy and quick for a midweek supper. Inspired by Chicken With Apricot and Almonds. I served it with couscous which I also made with pine nuts and apricots.

Very good! Only thing I will change next time is to toast the pine nuts and add them right before serving. Really delicious recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, brown the chicken pieces in 1 tbsp olive oil, about 4-5 min per side. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Heat remaining oil in skillet. Add onions, and saute until soft, 3-4 minutes. Add garlic, ginger and chili paste, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes (with juices), allspice, cinnamon, turmeric, lemon juice, sugar, salt, apricots and pine nuts and stir well. Nestle chicken pieces into sauce; pour any accumulated juices from the plate into the skillet as well. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook 15 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Serve with couscous.
