"Everyone in the family enjoyed it! His parents aren't too fond of spicy food, so it is always wonderful to find a dish that has lots of flavor but isn't too hot for some at the table. I used chicken breasts rather than a whole chicken. Turned out great!"

"Dee-Lish! easy to prep, just a little chopping which could be done night before. Apricots/spices/onions- a really nice mix. We served over wild rice and froze half. Will definitely do this one again :)"

"This was a nice, quick, slow cooker dinner. The spices and dried fruit were a nice flavor, different from the usual chicken dishes. I used 3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, and there was easily enough for 5 servings. After the chicken was done, I left the lid off the cooker, and turned it up to high to thicken the sauce."

"I had never had Moroccan food before, but thought I would give this recipe a try. I really enjoyed it. I halved the recipe (except for the lemon juice, which I accidentally added the full amount) and used boneless, skinless chicken breast. It was really good. The balance of the spices and the sweetness of the fruit really made the dish for me."
