  • Apricot Chicken by nommie

    Here is a great recipe that comes from Rachel Ray. She made the chicken and served it with the Potato Latkes. I made the chicken and served it with wild rice. Kroger has a brand that is mixed in a plastic jar that is "royal" something. It is expensive but really good. I will try to remember to check the name when I get home from work.
    I also made notes on these recipes for what I did for the "low cal" versions. BTW, I do not know the calories or nutrition info.

    Apricot Chicken

    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, 2 turns of the pan
    2 pounds chicken tenderloins, cut in 1/2 across on an angle
    Salt and pepper
    1 large onion, chopped
    2 tablespoons cider or white wine vinegar
    12 dried pitted apricots, chopped
    2 cups chicken stock
    1 cup apricot all fruit spread or apricot preserves (I used the All fruit type-no sugar)
    3 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley, for garnish
    Heat a large skillet with a lid over medium high heat. Add oil and chicken. Season with salt and pepper. Lightly brown the chicken a few minutes on each side, add onions. Cook 5 minutes. Add vinegar to the pan and let it evaporate. Add apricots and stock. When stock comes to a bubble, add preserves and stir to combine. Cover pan, reduce heat and simmer 10 to 15 minutes. Serve chicken with a sprinkle of chopped parsley.

    Quick Potato and Carrot Latkes
    1 (24-ounce) bag shredded potatoes for hash browns
    1 large carrot, peeled
    1 medium onion, peeled
    2 eggs, beaten (I used egg beaters
    2 teaspoons salt
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    3 tablespoons matzo meal, cracker meal or all-purpose flour
    Vegetable oil, for frying (I barely coated the pan and then sprayed the patties)
    2 cups chunky apple sauce
    1 cinnamon stick
    1 cup sour cream
    Heat 1/2-inch oil in a large skillet over medium to medium high heat. To test oil, add a piece of bread to the pan. It should turn golden brown in a ten-count. Adjust heat, as necessary.
    Place potatoes in a large bowl. Using a hand grater, grate the carrot and onion into the bowl. Add eggs to the bowl. Add salt and baking powder, then sprinkle in meal or flour. Combine vegetables and meal with a wooden spoon.
    Drop mixture into oil in 3-inch mounds, press down gently with spatula to form patties. Fry in batches of 4 to 6 patties depending on the size of your skillet, 1-inch apart, until golden, about 3 minutes on each side. Put chunky applesauce and the cinnamon stick in a saucepan over medium heat and warm for 3 to 4 minutes. Drain latkes on paper towels or parchment lined tray. Serve with warm applesauce and sour cream.
