Super-Easy Apricot Chicken

Super-Easy Apricot Chicken

(adapted from myrecipes.com) 

Yield:  4 Servings

 12 dried apricots

4-6 medium chicken breasts

Salt and pepper

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 onion, sliced

1 cup chicken broth

 

Rinse apricots and scatter them in a slow cooker. Pat chicken dry; season with salt and pepper. Warm oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side. (Brown in batches to avoid crowding skillet.) Arrange over apricots.

Pour off all but 1 Tbsp. fat in skillet. Add onion and cook until just soft, 2 to 4 minutes.

Add broth to skillet; turn heat to high. Bring to a boil, loosening browned bits.

Pour contents of skillet over apricots and chicken. Cover and cook on low heat for 4 hours.

Carefully transfer breasts to a serving dish (they’ll tend to fall apart easily); cover with foil to keep warm. Pour remaining contents into a saucepan. Boil, stirring often, until reduced and thickened, about 10 minutes. Pour over chicken.

Serve with rice and steamed vegetables.
