Apricot chicken recipe please??

itsmineah, Apr 30, 1:01am
Now that we live in melbourne we cant get the watties products that we used to use to make apricot chicken.

I made it last night using a sachet from woolies that used a can of apricot nectar as well and it just wasnt the same quite runny and bland.

I have looked through my Alison Holst books and cant find anything either.

I wonder if one of you lovely ladies might be able to help me out with this otherwise I will have to wait till I come over for a holiday and do a big shop up and bring it back :)

600g Chicken Breasts boneless and skinless(or pieces)
4 T tomato sauce
2 T soy sauce
2 T Worcestershire sauce
4 T while flour
1/2 t to 1t powdered ginger
420g can of apricot halves (or pieces) in juice

Cut chicken into bite sized pieces and put in a casserole dish (prefereably one with a lid, otherwise use tin foil to cover while baking)
Drain the apricots and whisk the juice in with the other ingredients.
Put the apricot pieces on top of the chicken, then pour the sauce over top.
Bake in the oven for 30 to 40 minutes.

Hope this fits the bill for you - it works for me every time.

C/O Recipezar and touted as the BEST apricot chicken recipe - may be worth a try

* 1 kg chicken breast
* 1 package French onion soup

* 1 (500 ml) can apricot halves

* 1 (500 ml) can apricot nectar
* 1 cup cornflour
* pepper
* oil (a tiny bit)
* pasta (of your choice)


Cut the chicken breasts into cubes.

Place the cornflour and pepper in a small plastic bag so that you can shake the cornflour onto the chicken pieces.

Start cooking your pasta so that it is ready when the chicken is.

Shake the cornflour onto the chicken pieces.

Place the oil into a frying pan and cook the chicken so that it is fully cooked.

Mix the french onion soup and apricot nectar together and add to the chicken in the frying pan.

Cook and stir for a couple of minutes.
Add the apricot halves and the juice from the apricot halves.

Stir continually and cook for a further 10-15 minutes so that the flavor can be absorbed by the chicken.
