Apricot Chicken

The following recipe was prepared by my friend, Denise. It was a delicious chicken dish that can be made with some common ingredients most likely in your pantry. It went perfectly with our Australian menu and I learned that AllRecipes even has a specific Australian site!

  2. This is interesting. My sister lives in Australia and has for the past 25 years, and has 5 Aussie kids, and they don't as a rule really like their meats sweetened AT ALL. The culture seems to prefer salty or bland over sugary sauces such as this.

    I make this same dish but with apricot jam and onion soup mix, it's a fave of mine!
