This quick and easy apricot chicken recipe has good childhood memories. I remember this recipe well, as a kid, growing up in a privileged home. We had a live-in domestic assistant who permanently did the cooking in our home. My mother had such a good relationship with her that she trusted her with most of the cooking, every day every night.

Except for this apricot chicken recipe. This is the only menu I can remember my mother cooking and the stand-out menu on special occasions, every special occasion. If you had to ask me, I would say, she did a fine job preparing this apricot chicken recipe.

I would not call my mom lazy. She was a hardworking mother who brought up two kids on her own. That takes courage. What I can say is this is the most delicious meal I know. for how ridiculously easy it is to prepare. Our domestic assistant strengths lied in curry. My mother's strength lied in this apricot chicken recipe.

I finally managed to get the apricot chicken recipe out of my mom and decided to share it with other single hardworking mothers. It is definitely a recipe they can use to impress their children.

We hope you will enjoy this recipe. If you do please let us know what you think of it, or even better, take a snapshot and tag us on Instagram @cookingcatdotcom

This one is for you, mum. Cheers.
