Marinate chicken the night before for a stronger flavour

Use fresh apricots instead of dried if they’re in season

Can be cooked in a slow cooker. Just add all ingredients and allow to cook throughout the day (do not dice chicken)

You can use any veggies you like

Note: if you are making this recipe gluten free, check the Moroccan seasoning
