Apricot Chicken - Instructions

Note: Turmeric will color the skin yellow, use gloves when coating chicken with
spices.


In a small bowl, combine cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, turmeric, pepper, 1 teaspoon
salt. Coat the chicken skin with spice mixture. Set aside.

Note: Depending on the size of the skillet, chicken may need to be browned in
batches. Be careful to not over crowd the pan.


In a large, heavy bottomed skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Add chicken,
skin side down, and brown for 6 to 8 minutes. Turn chicken and cook for an additional
3 minutes more, then transfer to a plate. Brown remaining chicken in the same manner.

apricots. Stir to combine, scraping the bottom to release any browned bit. Add chicken
and any juices accumulated on plate. Cover and reduce heat. Simmer for 30 minutes.
