Apricot Chicken Recipe
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. Use 2 pieces of chicken per person and about a 1 1/2 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.
NOTES: Chicken embalmed in apricot nectar -- Apricot Chicken is the ultimate bachelors delight. It is very simple and tastes wonderful.
