Super-Easy Apricot Chicken

All You NOVEMBER 2006

  • Yield: 4 Servings
  • Cook time: 4 Hours
  • Prep time: 15 Minutes
  • Cost Per Serving:$2.11

Ingredients

  • 12 dried apricots
  • 8 medium chicken thighs (about 2 1/2 lb.)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 cup chicken broth

Preparation

Rinse apricots and scatter them in a slow cooker. Pat chicken dry; season with salt and pepper. Melt butter in oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook thighs until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side. (Brown in batches to avoid crowding skillet.) Arrange over apricots.

Pour off all but 1 Tbsp. fat in skillet. Add onion and cook until just soft, 2 to 4 minutes.

Add broth to skillet; turn heat to high. Bring to a boil, loosening browned bits.

Pour contents of skillet over apricots and chicken. Cover and cook on low heat for 4 hours.

Carefully transfer thighs to a serving dish (they'll tend to fall apart easily); cover with foil to keep warm. Pour remaining contents into a saucepan. Boil, stirring often, until reduced and thickened, about 10 minutes. Pour over chicken.
