  1. Used reciepe, but didn’t have apricot nectar so subsituted with a small jar of homemade marmalade and the French Onion soup mix + 1/4 cup water and was perfect – will be doing again!

  2. I made this tonight, I used a 400g tin of nectar and 400g tin of half apricots. I only used 500g of chicken thighs sliced in half and put on low for 4 hrs! Added a onion too (only half put of French onion) delicious!

  3. Very nice, i used 1 x 400ml apricot Necter, 1 x Onion chopped, 4x chicken fillets dredged in plain flour seasoned with oregano pinch salt & pepper, 1 x salt reduced french onion soup mix. Cooked for 4 hrs on low

  4. Very tasty! Made it with 400ml nectar and a 400g halved apricots, half the chicken and one french onion soup mix, as hubby doesn’t eat apricot chicken. I loved it though

  5. Could I make this using whole chicken breasts and shred them at the end ? or would chicken breasts be too dry for this recipe. Or could chicken legs be used ? Just wanting to use a cheaper cut of chicken ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Could someone enlighten me on what โ€œseasoned flourโ€ is? Is it literally salt and pepper in flour or am I ment to find this flour at a supermarket? ?โ€โ™€๏ธ?โ€โ™€๏ธ

    First time cooking apricot chicken ever.
    This recipe was so delicious & tasted just how my Mum use to make it.
    I wanted to add a creamy texture so added cooking cream towards the end of the cooking time.
    I also added extra ingredients, onion, red capsicum & green beens towards the end. Also a clove of garlic at the beginning.
    Served with white rice. Will definitely make this again ๐Ÿ˜‹

    Enjoyed this one but could have been better. Wasn’t quite apricot tasting enough, there wasn’t enough sweetness as a traditional apricot chicken. Next time will try it with an apricot jam I think. Was good though and will make again ๐Ÿ™‚ thanks
