Heat the oil in a large, shallow flameproof casserole dish. Season the guinea fowl pieces and brown them – in batches, if necessary – then remove to a plate.
Fry the onions in the same dish until softened, then add the garlic and squash, cooking for 1-2 mins. Tip in the spices and cook for a few mins before adding the honey, saffron and lemon juice. Pour in the chicken stock and the chickpeas.
Submerge the guinea fowl pieces in the stock and add the apricots. Cover the dish and simmer everything very gently for 50 mins-1 hr, until the fowl and squash are both tender. Stir through the coriander and serve with couscous or rice.
