Apricot Glazed Chicken is a fun way to use those apricots you picked up from the farmers market!

*Serves 4-6

  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 shallots
  • 6 apricots

  1. Chop shallots, and in a large skillet, sauté them with oil until soft.
  2. Take pits out of apricots.
  3. Put apricots, ginger, honey, vinegar, mustard, red pepper flakes, and salt and pepper in a blender and combine until smooth. Add to the skillet.

  6. Pat chicken pieces dry, toss with oil, and salt and pepper. Brush chicken pieces with glaze.
