    Chef Kate's Note:

    This is my take on an old low country recipe for chicken. I make it with chicken breasts. The more traditional recipe calls for chicken thighs. All versions require bourbon. When they're in season, peaches can be substituted for the apricots. If you can find a jalepeno with heat, that can sub for the cayenne.

      Ooo is this good! I made with chicken thighs as I prefer dark meat (I used 8 thighs and left other amounts the same). I couldn't decide between cayenne & paprika so I used 1/2 tsp of each which worked well. Also, when I seasoned the chicken, I lifted up the skin and s&p'ed underneath. Thanks for a delicious recipe - will make again for sure!

      I think the chicken breast should have been browned stove top before going into the oven. The skin was just to mushy. Not appealing. I liked the idea of layering everything it gave it a nice presentation. The apricots was just to overpowering. I used 7 ounces of baby spinach and that was more then enough.
