Apricot Chicken with Balsamic Vinegar


  • 2 T EVOO
  • 2 pounds chicken breast tenderloins, cut into bite-size pieces
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 large onion, chopped (optional)
  • 1/4 c Traditional or Traditional White Balsamic Vinegar, to taste
  • 20 dried apricots
  • 1 c chicken stock
  • 1 c apricot preserves
  • 1 T chopped fresh thyme
  • 3 T chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (optional)


Heat the EVOO in a large skillet with a lid over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, and cook until golden brown around the edges, but still pink in the center, about 5 minutes. Stir in the onion, and cook for about 3 minutes more. Pour in the Balsamic Vinegar, bring it to a simmer, and allow it to reduce. Cut half of the apricots in half, leaving the others whole. Place the apricots into the skillet, and pour in the chicken stock. Bring to a simmer, then stir in the apricot preserves and thyme. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the apricots have softened, 10 to 15 minutes. Sprinkle with chopped parsley to serve.
