This week I was craving Apricot Chicken, an easy dinner that could be enjoyed by the whole family and even better if I could puree some for bub. While it might be easy to go to the supermarket and use a “no thought required” recipe base I promise you it’s just as easy to make your own. The added benefit of knowing exactly what is in you food and avoiding unnecessary ingredients like modified corn starch … what exactly is that?!?
Just as easy and more delicious here is my Apricot Chicken for your family to enjoy!
2 chicken breasts (approx 800gr)
1/3 cup Natural Evolution Ultimate Gluten Free Baking Flour (Green Banana Flour)
1/2 cup dried apricots (organic if possible)
400ml of apricot nectar (organic if possible)
2 tablespoons of oil
1 brown onion cut into rings or wedges
2 cloves of garlic crushed/cut finely
1 tablespoon of Moroccan seasoning
Rice or Cauliflower to serve
Parsley to serve
In a shallow dish add green banana flour (reserve 1 tablespoon of green banana flour for later) and a sprinkle of salt and pepper to taste. Toss chicken pieces in flour shaking of excess.
In a large fry pan heat oil and cook chicken gently until golden. If required add extra oil.
Remove chicken from pan and set aside. Now cook the onion and garlic until tender.
Return chicken to the pan with onion and garlic and add in Moroccan seasoning. Pour apricot nectar into pan and stir then add dried apricots.
Cover and gently simmer for 20-25 mins. Add one tablespoon of Green Banana Flour to thicken (add more for a thicker sauce).
Serve on a bed of steamed rice or cauliflower rice.
