I already have my own version, but I want some new ideas and wisdom, mine in getting a bit boring, nothing like a new recipie to spice up someones life. I love putting either "Brandy,Malibu,or white wine" in my recipies , but please any new ideas would be great.Thanks heaps for any ideas.

I've never had Apricot Chicken but it sounds good. If I come across any that look good I'll let you know. And hopefully someone else who already has a good one will post one soon.

Would this be any good if you substituted chicken for duck?

duck breast:

2 boned duck breasts
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped apricots tinned in juice
2 tablespoons juice from apricots
1 tablespoon good brandy
1 teaspoon cornflour
vegetable stock
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons butter

- Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the duck breast skin side down.
- Turn over.
- Turn down the heat and cook gently until the breasts are tender.
- Season with salt and pepper.
- Remove the breasts from the pan and keep warm.
- Remove as much fat as possible from the pan but leave the duck juices behind.
- Put the pan on a gentle heat and add about 1 cup of the stock.
- Stir to incorporate all the duck juices into the stock and then add the butter, apricots, juice and brandy.
- Mix the cornflour to a smooth paste with a little cold water and add to the pan, stirring all the time.
- Serve this sauce with the duck.

How funny you mention this - earlier this week I was making a Cooking Light Pork Chops with Country Gravy and was a little bored with it also, so I added 1/2 cup Apricot jam (and a little red pepper flakes) to the gravy - it was great! At the time I thot I'd try it with chicken also...bet it would be very good. Even thin the gravy a tad with some apply brandy......

Here's the recipe -

After adding the apricot jam, I put the chops back in the gravy for a few minutes.

Ooooooooh, there's one on that link for chicken salad with necatrines. Sounds scrumptious. I just can't wait for necatrines to come into season. I love them.
Thanks for the link.
