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 🙂
