Slow Cooker Apricot Chicken

Slow Cooker Apricot Chicken

6 skinless bone in chicken thighs
S&P to taste
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. ginger, minced
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground allspice
14 oz. can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 cup chicken stock
8 oz. dried apricots

Brown chicken on all sides in a bit of vegetable oil, set aside
Saute onions until translucent.
Add garlic, ginger, cinnamon, and allspice, saute for a few seconds until fragrant
Add tomatoes and stock, cook for a few minutes until heated through
Add chicken, onion / tomato mixture, and apricots to a slow cooker.
Cook on low for 5 - 6 hours, high for 3 - 4 hours
Serve over basmati rice, garnish with chopped parsley if desired

I made this with 4 thighs and 6 oz. apricots, and it was too sweet for my liking. I'll probably use half the amount next time. I made this in a Cuisinart Multicooker, and the thighs were done in a little over 2 hours on high. The Multicooker has a metal insert and a saute function, and appears to come up to temperature rather quickly, so the recommended cooking time is probably appropriate for a basic slow cooker with a ceramic crock (the original recipe was from a Rival cookbook).

Thank you, tenspeed - this sounds like a tasty dish. I also appreciate your tip about it being rather sweet and reducing the amount of apricots next time. I'll also use my Nesco when I make it.

I do almost the same thing in the pressure cooker (10 minutes) minus the tomatoes.
