    PaulaG's Note:

    This recipe comes from the package of apricots I have in my pantry. I love the flavors of the Mediterranean and thought this sounded yummy. If you would like and have some cooked chicken, you can shred the chicken and add to the dish along with the apricots for a light main course.

      Flavour five stars but I didn't like the directions. First of all I soaked basmati rice, and used white organic onion instead of green as that's what I had on hand. Mixing the organic chopped apricots into the rice and cooking more was not the optimal way add them in my opinion as it would interrupt the cooking of the rice and break the grains. I used homemade lamb stock instead of chicken stock as that is what I had on hand. Served with a Middle Eastern lamb dish and greens for a delicious meal. I'd use the basic idea of this recipe again.

      This wasn't as fabulous as I was expecting. I did increase the rice to 2c because the directions on my basmati said 2c rice to 3c liquid. I increased the spices a bit, 1c of apricots & lots more scallion but it needed more. I also added s&p. And I sauteed a minced onion with the garlic. Oh, I also added some chickpeas that I had cooked to make it a vegetarian meal. It was good; there wasn't much left. Made for The Land of Figs & Apricots in the NA/ME Forum 3/14. Thank you, Paula!

      I made this last evening to be served with Ras El Hanout rubbed chicken leg parts. I loved it! I did use all chicken stock and also added in a few golden raisins. Dee-licious! :D
