Chicken with Apricot and Olives

This bright and lively dish pairs beautifully with rice and a toasty bread.  The recipe calls for apricots which have been sulfered (to retain color and flavor) but unsulfured can be used and add a smoky flavor to the finished dish.

Instructions
  1. In a 4 quart or larger electric slow cooker, combine apricots, olives, garlic, orange peel and basil. Rinse chicken and pat dry then arrange on top of the mixture in the pot. Sprinkle with pepper, capers, and sugar. Drizzle in orange juice and vinegar. Cover and cook at low setting until meat near the bone is very tender (if temping, when it reaches 165 degrees) about 6 to 7 hours.
  2. If desired: When chicken has finished cooking, gently lift the chicken, apricots, and olives out of the pot with a slotted spoon and arrange on a serving dish, keep warm. Skim and discard fat from the cooking liquid; pour liquid into a small pan. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring often till reduced to about 1/2 cup. Pour sauce over the chicken and serve.
  3. Sauce is also delicious straight from the crock without being reduced.
