Recipe Ingredients for CHICKEN WITH TAMARIND, APRICOTS AND CHIPOTLE SAUCE

12 oz chicken breasts, boneless, skinless (4)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup safflower or corn oil
2 cups water
1/2 cup, dried apricots, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon apricot preserves
1/2 cup tamarind concentrate, or substitute with 1 tbsp tamarind paste mixed with 1/2 tbsp sugar and 3/8 cup water
1/4 oz chipotles in adobo sauce

Recipe Directions for CHICKEN WITH TAMARIND, APRICOTS AND CHIPOTLE SAUCE

  1. Thoroughly rinse chicken pieces with cold water and pat dry. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  2. In a deep extended skillet, heat oil over medium heat until it is hot but not smoking. Add chicken pieces in one layer, bring heat to medium-low, and slowly brown the chicken pieces for one hour. Turn them over every once in a while, so they will brown evenly on all sides.

  3. Pour water over the chicken, raise the heat to medium-high, and bring it to a simmer. Incorporate the apricots, apricot preserve, tamarind concentrate, chipotle sauce and salt and stir, and keep it at a medium simmer for 35 to 40 minutes more. You may need to bring down the heat to medium.

  4. The sauce should have thickened considerably as to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Taste for salt and heat and add more salt or chipotle sauce to you liking.
