i serve this with steamed veggies and sometimes with rice or egg noodles, a family staple!


Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 4 chicken breasts or thighs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large brown onion, chopped
  • 1 can apricot nectar
  • 1 packet french onion soup
  • 1 cup dried apricots

Method

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a deep, large, heavy-based frying pan over medium heat. Cook chicken, in batches, for 2 to 3 minutes each side or until golden. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining chicken and oil. Cover and set aside.
  2. Add onion to frying pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes or until tender. Sprinkle Moroccan seasoning over onion and stir until well combined.
  3. Stir in apricot nectar and french onion soup. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Return chicken to frying pan. Cover with a lid or double piece of foil. Cook for 20 minutes. Remove cover and add apricots, pushing them into the sauce. Cook, uncovered, for a further 20 to 25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and sauce has thickened.

  • This is a little different to our apricot chicken but this looks great..
