Skillet Chicken with Apricots and Capers

Recipe photo courtesy of Andrew Purcell

This chicken-and-couscous dish makes an easy one-skillet meal. We love the tangy-sweet flavor of California apricots, but Turkish apricots are delicious, too.

Cook's Notes

Try These
Salt-packed capers deliver a more pure caper flavor. Just soak, drain, and rinse them before using.

    Delicious and easy! Like another commenter, I substituted rice for couscous, and it was still great. Apricots gave everything a wonderful flavour, and the capers blended in subtly.

    I substituted couscous with Thai jasmine rice because my sis-in-law is allergic to wheat. I would never have thought to combine dried apricots and capers to a chicken dish. Everyone loved it. Nice presentation too. Thank you!

    This was a great one-pot recipe, full flavored and not too fussy for a school night. Will make again!

    Wow. What a great recipe. It is a very simplified version of Chicken Mirabella but a lot quicker to make.
