Apricot Chicken: A Truly tasty chicken dish that's quick to prepare.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius. Prepare baking dish by spraying lightly with cooking oil.
Coat the chicken thigh fillets in flour and place onto a hot oiled frying pan. Cook each fillet for approximately 3 minutes either side (you want them to be lightly golden on the outside but not cooked all the way through).
In a jug, mix the apricot nectar and french onion soup mix together. Place the golden chicken into the baking dish and pour the mix over the chicken.
Combine the peas and cut up broccoli in the dish with the other ingredients. Add the apricot halves.
Cook in oven for approximately 25 minutes.
While chicken is cooking, prepare the rice.
In a medium saucepan, bring four cups of water to the boil.
As water is boiling, add two cups of rice, turn the heat down to simmer and place lid on top.
Stir rice occasionally so it does not stick to the bottom of pan.
Once rice is ready, you can begin to serve into portions. Take the apricot chicken out of the oven and also distribute among plates.
