    All round winner in this house, another meal to add to the 'approved' list! I used 600g of chicken breast as thats all i had and could of easily done with more meat as produces heaps of sauce. I also only had a tin of nectar so just used that (one tin)

    My husband can't stop raving about this dish! He was a bit apprehensive about me making Apricot Chicken as all other dishes of it that he has tried in the past, he didn't like. This one though, HE LOVED IT! I left out the coriander though. It was absolutely delicious and we will make it again!

    Submitted by AlanaBanana on 17. May 2016 - 21:46.

    Maybe you are right. they are just the Aldi 8 pack of thighs, not really sure if they are big or not. Regardless, I Will give that a go next time... Thanks tmrc_emoticons.)

  • That's odd. I've never had

    Submitted by Witsy on 17. May 2016 - 21:27.

    That's odd. I've never had that issue. Are you using thigh? Maybe you could cut your meat up a bit more instead of just in half. Sometimes I cut my thigh into 3 if it's big thigh. 

    Live Life to the Thermo-max!

    Submitted by AlanaBanana on 17. May 2016 - 19:49.

    Love this recipe but usually do the cooking on the stove. Tried to do the whole thing in the thermomix tonight but the chicken was still quite raw by the end. Am I going wrong somewhere or do other people find this?

  • cooking this at the moment,

    Submitted by Alix on 29. December 2014 - 20:12.

    cooking this at the moment, everything smells amazing. I didn't have apricot halves so i substituted for dried apricots and a tin of nectar. Also didn't have chicken thigh do I used breast, and i also was only cooking for two so I cut the portions down a bit, I think when I add the corn flour  I'm going to put in my frozen green beans just to save me from steaming them. I can already tell I will be using this recipe again.

    Delicious, loved that it didnt use packet soup.  I prepared the sauce in my thermomix then cooked the chicken in it in the oven at 180 for 25 minutes.

    Submitted by Miss Lil on 21. March 2014 - 13:09.

    Love this recipe!  Made this today and my kitchen smelled sooooo good tmrc_emoticons.)  Very easy!  I ended up substituting the wine for water, and cubed the chicken thighs as my toddler will be eating it as well.  Hubby is looking forward to having this for work lunches for a couple of day.  I love not using a packet mix - now I know exactly what's in it, and it tastes a million times better tmrc_emoticons.)

  • I love the fact that there is

    Submitted by Classmyth on 23. February 2013 - 16:49.

    I love the fact that there is no store-bought french onion soup mix in sight, and still so flavoursome! I didnt have any tinned apricots in the pantry, so subbed in 300g apricot nectar and 220g chopped dried apricots which produced a wonderful "apricotty" flavour! I also omitted the onion powder and flakes for the toddlers eating this. Next time I'll try smoked paprika instead of Hungarian paprika. Big fan here!
