Yield: 4 servings
|2 pounds||Chicken pieces|
|1 pack||French onion soup mix|
|2 cups||Apricot nectar|
|1½ pounds||Apricot halves (canned)|
|\N \N||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 1½ 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.
