Yes I can see it. That’s not a dado joint. My best guess is to put a spline in the middle of both pieces .

I would Dowel it or if you or a friend has a Festool Domino tool – That would keep you from seeing the edge of the joint.

When Apart, check that the back slats are not bottomed out in their mortises – it can be that when you lean back – the slats straighten and push up on the crest of the chair.
