Mix the spices up (feel free to use more, with spices I just tend to go by what looks and tastes good). Sprinkle them over the chicken then place the chicken in a big freezer bag. Squeeze the juice of the 2 oranges into the bag and place the squeezed up oranges in the bag too. Put in fridge and let sit for 2 hours and up to overnight.

Place the chicken into your crockpot and add the carrots and apricots. Mix everything so that the carrots and apricots get covered in the juices, too. At this mixing point, I would sprinkle on some more salt (another tsp? Smell the food, if it smells like it is lacking, add more spice! ).

Set your crockpot to low for 4-6 hours, until chicken is done- moist and delicious.


  • 2 lbs. chicken
  • 2 cups dried apricots
  • 15 ounces baby carrots (or as many as want)
  • 2 tbs. cinnamon
  • 1 tbs. ground ginger
  • 1 tsp salt (more to taste)
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 2 oranges

    For clarification, I viewed this recipe on the creators website. The chicken is 2lbs of breast.

    I thought this was pretty awful. Way too much seasoning!

    This was wonderful! I halved all the spices due to the last comment. Also I used a cinnamon stick instead of ground cinnamon.

    This was awful! There was way too much seasoning. The only thing we could taste is the cinnamon – I was hoping for an orangey/apricot/ginger flavor as the title implies but it really should be called cinnamon nutmeg chicken.

    This is really yummy and I found the spices to be just right. The cinnamon blends really well with the apricots. I used boneless chicken thighs which gave it a little more richness in flavor. Thanks!
