Apricot chicken was a staple dish when I was growing up. It pleased everyone in the families taste buds; you could whip it up in a flash on those busy weeknights and mealtime was stress-free! So when I became a Mum and I had to feed my own little family, apricot chicken came to mind. However, my kids have been raised very holistically. I made apricot chicken the first time the same way it was served to me as a child, and they absolutely hated it! In their words, it tasted fake!
So I gave up the idea of apricot chicken altogether. Until recently, when I had a beautiful pile of fresh apricots sitting in my kitchen. I had the idea to create the recipe from fresh ingredients. It was a HUGE success! My family adores this recipe as do I, it’s an upgrade to the traditional recipe and I know you will love it.
Enjoy!
