      This is a very flavorful roasted chicken. I think I enjoyed the flavor of the skin the most. I basted with the juice a half an hour (instead of 15 minutes) by mistake before it was done so the bits of apricot charred. But, it was still divine. The sauce was sweet and tart at the same time. Good Luck Chef!

      A very nice recipe - just as the title states, it was wonderfully fruity and also very easy to make! I was a bit put off by the addition of 4 tablespoons of soy sauce - it was a bit too salty for our tastes and we felt that it was "fighting" with the fruit flavours, but we still enjoyed it. We all loved the addition of the fennel seeds and next time I make it, I will cut down on the soy sauce as well as the oil, using 1 tablespoon instead of 2. A great RSC recipe, and well worth trying out - thanks!
