Instant Pot® Chicken Tagine with Apricots and Chickpeas
In this dish, the Instant Pot® is used to create a dish reminiscent of a slowly braised stew in a traditional clay tagine. It's a sweet-and-savory, highly flavorful combo that will take you back to your Moroccan trip or inspire you to start planning for that Sahara camel-trek. Chicken is cooked until tender with onions, garlic, turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon. Apricots steep in the broth. Serve with rice or couscous and Greek yogurt.
You can also leave the dried apricots whole, if you'd like.
If a thicker sauce is desired, remove chicken after you release the pressure and add in a slurry made from 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 2 tablespoons cold water. Press Saute mode, and return sauce to a boil. Press Cancel, and sauce will quickly thicken.
