You will need the following:
2L bottle of Apricot Juice...mine was 25% juice....Cheaper than Apricot Nectar and you get more cooking liquor to soak in the rice
1 pkt French Onion Soup Mix
1.5 kg Chicken Breast OR Chicken pieces....this is the first time I have used Chicken breasts...I left them in a bit long, and found some cubes to be a bit dry
4 or 5 brown onions...sliced or diced
Now on the stove, add the Apricot Juice to a pot...and reduce to half the quantity.
Stir in the packet of French Onion Soup mix
Dice the chicken (if using chicken pieces, I remove the skin)
Dice the onion
Spray a baking dish with cooking spray....
Place onion, chicken and Apricot mix into baking dish
Cook in medium oven for 3/4 hour or until chicken is tender, stirring occasionally to prevent chicken pieces on top from drying out...If you put a lid on to prevent drying, you will create more juice, undoing all that reducing.

and other ingredients...That's it!

Do you like Apricot Chicken? Have you ever made it? If you make it like this, I'd love to hear about it.
