I have decided to mix up the traditional apricot chicken. I had some chicken thighs in the fridge that needed eating and when I was at the shops today all I could smell were the Nectarines so I decided to grab some and get creative with my chicken. And it worked surprisingly well. I’m calling it the modern take on Apricot Chicken.

And best of all it’s so easy and healthy. You pretty much throw everything into the one dish and let it cook. Here’s the recipe. Give it a try and let me know how you go.

If you’re like me and can’t get enough of these yummy Nectarines you should try my Burnt Caramel Upside Down Cake!
This is a great cake to have for dessert with a big scoop of ice cream!

  1. Delicious! Will definitely make again! Thank you Mardi for an easy to make dish……Rob made it, and is now adding it to his favourites πŸ™‚
    Only comment – cooked it for a further 15mins, and changed the dish from a high sided casserole dish to a larger roasting tin xx

  2. Cooked this for dinner tonight and it was soooo good. I didn’t have any fresh tomato so I used tin instead and that seemed to work well. It was great because I could make the dish early in ththe day when Bub was sleeping, then just leave it in the fridge marinating almost and through it in the oven for the evening. Yummy dinner. Thanks!
