      So easy, healthy and so delicious!<br/>I did not soak the apricots in water as I bough soft dried apricot and I did not use celery as I didn't have at time. In any case it was so delicious that I did not miss anything and I enjoyed it with fresh bread from the oven. I love chickepeas and for this reason I used the whole big tin I had on hand.<br/>I loved the spices and herbs (fresh cilantro) blend as well as all my family members.<br/>This recipe is a keeper and I will prepare this again.

      I made just a single serving for myself and enjoyed every bite. Using 1 fairly large breast and a small oval baking dish with the amounts given for 1 worked very well. I think I might have liked a bit more lemon but that could easily just be my taste as I do love lemon. All in all, very enjoyable with the whole wheat couscous that I have. Made for In The Lands od Figs and Apricots in the North Africa/Middle East forum :D
