This was very tasty--we liked the sweetness and the light spiciness of it. The apricots tasted especially good after being cooked in the crock pot for several hours.

Lovely Moroccan chicken dish! While I was adding the spices, I was fearful that it would be overpowering, but everything turned out very tasty. I couldn't really distinguish the apricots, but DH thought they made the dish sweet. I used diced boneless chicken breast and served with a nice loaf of French bread to mop us the sauce with. Oh - and I put my garbonzo's in right away (cuz I didn't read carefully enough) and they turned out just fine.

This was truly delicious. A nice change of pace from your typical crockpot recipes that include cream-of-something or other soup and a meat. Makes great leftovers. Be sure not to omit the slivered almonds, it really adds a nice texture. We served this over brown rice, because that's what we had on hand. Thanks for the great recipe!
