Have not long finished this for dinner tonight. The chicken was so tender juicy and succelent. I used to cook this in the oven but never again.

Giving the mango version a stab tonight…… Used chicken lovely legs, and had to sub spring veg soup as had no french onion, so added a diced carrot and some celery, plus some garlic and onion powder. Fingers crossed!! I’ll keep you posted 🙂

I’d give it a go 🙂

Would this work for a whole chicken to?

Depending on how many/how thick etc if they are whole I would reduce down to closer to 4hrs or a bit less 🙂

I love this recipe, have been cooking it for years when I had family at home loved by all (even the cat loved it, minus the onion ) only other thing I added was a tin of apricot halves.

I have never used curry powder in apricot chicken before and found the flavour so much nicer 🙂
