Can the chicken be replaced with pork and it still taste as nice?

Not yet made this but it's similar to a lamb tagine that I make. I would say that you will need the apricots. If it's anything like the tagine that I make, they will semi-melt giving the sauce a wonderfully sweet taste. I make my lamb one with dates (and sooooo many people turn their nose up at it) - but they actually melt, thicken the sauce and give it a lovely sweetness. People don't know that dates are in it til I tell them!
