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.
