Apricot Chicken

Ingredients
 

2 lb chicken pieces
1 package french onion soup mix
2 cup apricot nectar
1 1/2 lb apricot halves (canned)
1 flour (plain)




 
 Advertisements
Preparation
 
Dust chicken in flour. Fry chicken lightly until starting to brown.
Place chicken in a casserole dish or a very deep frying pan. Add soup
powder, nectar and apricots. Mix everything well. Simmer for 1 hour.

I normally use 2 pieces of chicken per person and about a 1 1/2 lb
can of apricot halves. This will suffice for 4 to 6 people. If you
cannot get nectar, then use the juice from the apricot halves. (Of
course, if you can buy apricots in nectar...)

The French onion soup quantity is not critical, but a soup packet that
makes up about 6 C is about right for 4 to 6 people. Serve with potato
(baked or boiled), buttered carrots and peas.

NOTES:

* Chicken embalmed in apricot nectar -- Apricot Chicken is the
ultimate bachelors delight. It is very simple and tastes wonderful.
The recipe was given to me by a group of friends from back home who
came to visit me. Yield: Serves 4-6.

: Difficulty: easy.
: Time: 10 minutes preparation, 1 hour cooking.
: Precision: No need to measure.
