Makes 4 servings
Ingredients: 2-3 pounds (960-1440 g) chicken drumsticks, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) coconut oil, half of the medium yellow onion, peeled and sliced into half rounds, 1 teaspoon (5 ml) ground cumin, 1 teaspoon (5 ml) ground turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon (3 ml) ground coriander, 1 teaspoon (5 ml) ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon (3 ml) ground cardamom, 1/4 teaspoon (1 ml) cayenne pepper, 4 cloves garlic, peeled and minced, 1½ tablespoons (22.5 ml) grated fresh ginger, 1½ teaspoon (8 ml) sea salt, 2 cups (500 ml) low-sodium beef broth, 1 cup (250 ml) roughly chopped dried apricots, 2 cups (500 ml) cubed sweet potatoes
Instructions: In a small mixing bowl, combine cumin, turmeric, coriander, cinnamon, cardamom, cayenne pepper, and minced garlic. Stir well, then set aside.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat the coconut oil over medium heat. Add chicken drumsticks to the hot oil and cook for 5-6 minutes. Remove cooked drumsticks from the skillet and transfer to a 4-6-quart slow cooker.
Add sliced onions to the skillet and sauté, stirring occasionally, for 3-4 minutes or until onion is lightly browned. Stir in the spice mixture and cook for a further 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Turn off the heat.
Pour in the beef broth, then stir in ginger and sea salt. Pour the entire mixture over the chicken drumsticks in the slow cooker. Close the pot and cook on low-heat setting for 3 hours, then open the lid and stir in dried apricots and cubed potatoes.
Close the cooker and cook for a further 3 hours. Turn the slow cooker and open the lid. Stir the chicken mixture well before serving. Sprinkle with chopped fresh cilantro and serve. Enjoy!
