    ciao's Note:

    Another entry for the "I got home late, but still want a great meal" category. You can make this faster than it would take to go out and get take-out. And it's delicious. This one is for 2, but can very easily be doubled.

      Don't overcook, you don't want chewy chicken.

      Combine preserves and vinegar in a bowl, then add the cooked chicken.
    5. 5
      Add the broth to the pan, scraping up the good stuff on the bottom, add the apricots.

      This was so easy and delicious! I scaled for 6 servings so I had to cook the couscous in a separate pot (but I was still sure to scrape the good stuff from the pan). I was worried about the sauce being too sweet (or too vinegarry -- my husband does not like that) but it was neither! It was just right. The apricots were a wonderful addition to the couscous. I served with steamed broccoli.

      Excellent! This is so easy and so good! I've made it twice - the first time, since I had no dried apricots, I omitted them and increased the amount of preserves. It was good, but a bit too sweet. The second time, I used the specified amount of preserves and added both golden raisins and some slivered almonds I had left over from baking. Delicious!
