Always Apricot Chicken

COOK TIME
1 Hr

Fresh apricots have a really short season. So by using canned apricots and bottled apricot preserves, we can extend their season to last us the whole year!

What You'll Need

  • 1 chicken (2½ to 3 pounds), cut into 8 pieces and skin removed
  • 2 cans (5½ ounces each) apricot nectar
  • 1 jar (18 ounces) apricot preserves
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. Place the chicken in a 9" x 13" glass baking dish that has been coated with nonstick vegetable spray.

  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; mix well. Pour over the chicken and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally.

  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degree F. and bake the chicken, covered, for 30 minutes. Remove the cover and bake for 25 to 30 more minutes, or until no pink remains and the juices run clear.

Notes

I recommend buying the small individual-serving size cans of apricot nectar. That way you can always keep some on hand in the cupboard for when you want to whip this up for dinner.

Just trying this new recipe for chicken. Do I leave all of the apricot nector and apricot preserve in the dish when I bake the chicken? Bernadette Flowers bernie195@zoominternet.net

Herb Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce

Instead of cooking ham or prime rib for Easter, why not try something new this year? Our Herb-Crusted Lamb with Mint Sauce may look and sound fancy, but it's really easy to do. It's basically a rack of lamb that's coated with herbs and spices before it's roasted to perfection. Just before serving, it's finished off with a mint-wine reduction. The end result is an Easter-worthy main dish that'll impress everyone at the table.
