Hey SR... apricot chicken.

I'm making this a special thread, because SR has been bugging me for probably seven years or more to make this, and I finally did.

As far as I can tell, this is the first mention of the recipe in 2007, but it looks like the posts have archived, and I can't see anything earlier.

Mix everything together in mixing bowl. Pour over chicken. Bake 30 minute at 350 reduce to 250 for 1.5 hrs. Serve with plain white rice and green beens accompany this nicely.
So here it is, SR. Tasty stuff. I served with some basmati rice and green beans with a little bacon (because bacon). Honestly, one of the best chicken meals I've made in a long time. I made as instructed this time, and I'll do it again with my own twist.

I was very good. I should have made it a long time ago, just never got around to it. I thought about it this morning and sent a shopping list to the wife.

Next time will be a bit different. I may cook the chicken separately to get the skin really crispy - maybe even spatchcock the breast and fry in a skillet first. I can render down the sauce in a saucepan and spoon over the top.

yeah it's solid - I'm not sure where the recipe originated. I'll have to ask.

That's cool man. Yeah it's quite good surprisingly.

The bone-in breast is integral to your recipe, as is that low cook temp. I'd like to see what I can do to speed up the time to table.

The diced onion in that sauce is a great touch. Plays with the sweetness from the apricot.

For each other, or in general? Details matter.

And cooking has gotten me laid more than once.

So I'm thinking about getting some boneless breasts (with skin) and doing them sous vide. Then use a skillet to crisp the skin. The sous vide will render a lot of the fat while keeping the meat perfectly cooked.

Meanwhile, I saute the onion with some garlic or ginger (both great combos with apricot), then simmer with the apricot jam, soy sauce, and sherry.

The green beans are a good side, but I'd skip the bacon and do a traditional amandine with almonds, which is also a classic combo with apricot, to tie the dish together.

Put a bed of rice down with the beans on the side, slice the chicken on the bias, and spoon the sauce over chicken and rice.

Would probably cut the time to table to 45 minutes or so.
