    Use real stock, for sauce thickening. I used 8 thighs - left skin on for flavor - worked fine. Cooked 1 hr in oven, then gave them a quick broil to crisp skin while sauce boiled down. Added green olives (Castelvetrano), pitted, when boiling sauce down. Use good ripe dried apricots, such as Blenheims. Made day ahead, then reheated and added almonds and apricots before serving. (Pair with Riesling Kabinett.)

    Fantastic flavour for minimum effort. I didn't even buy and joint a chicken, just used a pack of 10 skinless, boneless chicken thighs. It didn't even take long to make and it's perfect for making a day ahead and reheating. Everyone loved it!

    Delicious! A good one to make for company as it can cook away in the oven until it is ready to serve - I let it spend twice as long in the oven as the recipe suggested and skipped the step of reducing the sauce when ready to serve. I loved that the apricots were plumped separately before adding to the dish, which helped them retain their identity compared to other similar preparations. Substituted parsley for the coriander and skipped the almonds as I served it with couscous (with added almonds, barberries and currants), Ottolenghi's spicy carrot salad and Ottolenghi's roasted cauliflower and hazelnut salad (both from Jerusalem). Fantastic dinner spread due to the mix of flavours and all easy to prep in advance.
