Apricot Chicken

Sweet and sour, so delicious and so easy.

Perfect dinner to pair with some quinoa or brown rice and greens.

Apricot Chicken
What You Need:
4 Organic Chicken Breasts (approx 2lbs) (1 per person)
1 Tbsp Coconut oil
Olive Oil
1/2 Lemon
2 cups apricot jam (unsweetened)
4 tsp honey, maple syrup or raw agave
1 cup Raw Cashews or 1/2 cup coconut

1. Rinse chicken under water and pat dry with a paper towel
2. Place chicken in a plastic baggie, shut closed and wrap with a towel or paper towel. Using a tenderizer or a hammer (or something heavy like a glass), place bag of chicken on floor and bang on the chicken until it flattens. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, watch this video.
3. Once the chicken has flattened, take out of plastic bag and place on a cutting board. Cut off any remaining white or fat.
4. Coat a pyrex dish or baking sheet with coconut oil so the chicken doesn’t stick
5. Drizzle a little olive oil onto each piece of chicken and lemon juice. Then, spread 2 Tbsp of apricot jam, coating each side of each piece of chicken.
6. Place in oven on broil or at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes. The top side should be white and cooked through. Flip and cook another 10-15 minutes. If it looks pink or glassy, cook a few more minutes and then cut through the chicken and check again.
7. Add 1Tbsp of apricot jam and 1 tsp of honey, maple syrup or raw agave on top. Sprinkle some cashews or coconut on top. Cook for another 1-2 minutes. Plate them and add a slice of lemon on top as garnish.
Voila! Enjoy!
