33. Middle Eastern Inspired Chicken Dutch Oven Camping Recipe

I’ll let Carla, a reader, tell you about this recipe…

I gotta tell ya…this is my go-to chicken dish when I have company. It is phenomenal. I cook it all day so that the chicken gets nice and sticky. It is great to make the day ahead and even better as left-overs. I had people over for a Middle Eastern feast and they kept going back for seconds (and thirds) of this dish. I know some people are wary of cooking with fruit, but, one of the guys at my dinner absolutely hates fruit in meals. In fact, he was telling us, while he was eating this dish, how much he hates fruit. I waited until he was finished and said, “Weird. Cuz there’s both dates and apricots in that third helping you’re going for.” HAH! Thanks for this recipe – it has a permanent home in my ‘winner’s cookbook’.
