READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by DailyInspiration

What a delicious combination of food beginning with the warm spices and the addition of dates and apricots with lemon and chicken. YUM! Your don't have to have a tagine -- this dish can be made in a dutch oven. Recipe is from Cooking Light and is next on my list to try.

Delicious! I made this recipe in a sauté pan since I don't have a tagine, and the flavours were lovely. Looking forward to having this again!
