Apricot Chicken Recipe
2 lb chicken pieces
1 package french onion soup mix
2 cup apricot nectar
1 1/2 lb apricot halves (canned)
1 flour (plain)
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.
* Chicken embalmed in apricot nectar -- Apricot Chicken is the
ultimate bachelors delight. It is very simple and tastes wonderful.

Food Tips of the Week
Drink more water. At times during a hectic day, you guess you are peckish but in truth you might only want a restorative glass of water or cranberry juice. The sensations of needing food and needing a drink are close, but one can result in a fat tummy and the alternative is ok.
The case against low carb diets
Its extremely popular, but it is truly safe for you?
Cutting out carbohydrates could mean missing out on required nutrients from healthy foods which must be part of any well adjusted diet, especially those obtained from vegetables, fruits and whole grains.
Eating more animal-based products may lead into high consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which some authorities believe will increase the risk of heart conditions.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, leeks and spring onions)
The onion, leek and garlic family of foods is rich in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is not much scientific proof at hand, allyl sulfides are also believed to aid in antiinflammatory effect, arteriosclerosis and physical exhaustion.
Foods containing allyl sulfides also have a low calorie count, so should be included in your weight loss program.
