good enough for company: apricot chicken

got a quick one for you. i took these pictures two months ago with great intentions of sharing them right away. then i got busy with washing my soap. sorry about that.

here’s how it goes: preheat your oven to 350. take a 9×13 dish and drizzle 1 tbsp. olive oil and drop 1 tbsp butter in, and put it in the oven. take 4 chicken breasts and halve them and beat them til they’re evenly flat. or use 8 cutlets.

 

then, roll them in some flour (1/2 cup) with a little salt and pepper in there. pull the dish out of the oven and place the chicken in it, turning the chicken over to coat it in the oil/butter situation. Bake for 10 minutes.

while the chicken cooks, stir together 1/2 cup plain yogurt with 1 /2 cup apricot preserves and 3 tbsp. dijon mustard. pour it over the chicken in the pan and cook 15-20 more minutes until the sauce is bubbly and chicken is cooked through.

we love to serve this with a wild rice box mix, putting the chicken over the rice and spooning extra sauce over the whole thing. if you’re feeling extra fancy you can sprinkle some sliced toasted almonds on it.

i have one more good salad recipe to share, then we’ll move onto the State of the Union address… eventually.

  1. Yum!! Almost makes me wish I ate chicken. : ) I bet that sauce would be good on tofu, too. I need to try some tofu dishes. Hope you are all doing well!! xoxo
