Apricot chicken

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1kg (8 pieces) skinless chicken cutlets or drumsticks, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large brown onion, peeled, cut into thin wedges
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon Moroccan seasoning blend
  • 405ml can apricot nectar
  • 1/2 cup Angas Park Large Dried Apricots
  • 1 cup couscous
  • 1/3 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped

Method

  1. Step 1 - Place flour and salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Lightly coat chicken pieces in seasoned flour, shaking off excess.
  2. Step 2 - Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a deep, large, heavy-based frying pan over medium heat. Cook chicken, in batches, for 2 to 3 minutes each side or until golden. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining chicken and oil. Cover and set aside.
  3. Step 3 - Add onion and garlic to frying pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes or until tender. Sprinkle Moroccan seasoning over onion and stir until well combined.
  4. Step 4 - Stir in apricot nectar. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Return chicken to frying pan. Cover with a lid or double piece of foil. Cook for 20 minutes. Remove cover and add apricots, pushing them into the sauce. Cook, uncovered, for a further 20 to 25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and sauce has thickened.
  5. Step 5 - Meanwhile, place couscous in a heatproof bowl. Pour over 1 cup boiling water. Cover. Stand for 5 minutes or until water has been absorbed. Stir with a fork to separate grains. Spoon couscous onto plates. Spoon over chicken and sauce and sprinkle with parsley. Serve.
