There is a great Moroccan restaurant in downtown Seattle called Marrakesh that I used to frequent with my friends and husband. This restaurant offers a very authentic experience with floor seating, belly dancers and traditional food. One of their specialties is apricot chicken and it is hands down my favorite dish. Absolutely delicious! So I decided I would try to make my own version at home. I found this recipe over at Food.com and liked that you only need a couple of ingredients.
1/2 cup French (or Russian) dressing
1/2 cup apricot jam
1 packet dry onion soup mix
Approx. 3 lbs skinless chicken thighs
1. Wisk dressing, jam and onion soup mix together.
2. Brush over each piece of chicken and put in crock pot. Pour the rest of the sauce over top.
3. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 3-4.
My Crock Pot apricot chicken turned out really good! It’s a very easy recipe and full of flavor. But unfortunately not the same flavor as what I had a Marrakesh. I am definitely keeping this recipe for future use but still going to search for the secret to their apricot chicken 🙂

Yum! I think I've done something similar in the oven (years ago) but the crock pot recipe would be even better!
Mmmm I've actually tried this one and LOVE it! Yummy 🙂
i think they make it different in the marocan restaurant..
i can give you my receipe of chicken with dried abricots.
put chicken in pot..in hot oliveoil.. bake on all sides.. then season with pepper, salt, saffran and gingerpowder, paprikapowder and some fresh coriander leaves and some chopped unions.. bake for 5 minutes then add cup of water and cook till done
in other pot put dried apricots and cook in water till done.. (about 1 hour if you dont soak them overnight)
then put them in pot with chicken to mingle the flavours for 10 minutes..
put some sesameseeds in a frypan and fry them for 2 minutes..
put the couscous on a big plate .. put the chicken on top.. and put the sause with abricots around the chicken..
sprinkle the sesameseeds over it..
another variation.. change the abricots for dried plums
another variation.. change the abricots for raisins and then add also some chickpeas in the sauce.
these are the original marocain dishes i learned in marocco
