This recipe comes from Rachel Ray's 30 minute meals. I've become a recent addict of the food network, so I plan to start posting a lot of my own new recipes
We made this for dinner tonight and served it over brown rice. It was great!
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan 2 pounds chicken tenderloins, cut in 1/2 across on an angle Salt and pepper 1 large onion, chopped 2 tablespoons cider or white wine vinegar 12 dried pitted apricots, chopped 2 cups chicken stock 1 cup apricot all fruit spread or apricot preserves 3 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley, for garnish
Heat a large skillet with a lid over medium high heat. Add oil and chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Lightly brown the chicken a few minutes on each side, add onions. Cook 5 minutes. Add vinegar to the pan and let it evaporate. Add apricots and stock. When stock comes to a bubble, add preserves and stir to combine. Cover pan, reduce heat and simmer 10 to 15 minutes. Serve chicken with a sprinkle of chopped parsley.
