Ingredients: 

  • 3 boneless chicken breasts
  • 3 tablespoons grape seed oil 
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • 6 prunes
  • 4 dried apricots
  • 1 teaspoon dried saffron
  • 1 small white onion, chopped
  • 3/4 cups of boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds

 

Instructions:

In a medium sized 2-quart pot over medium heat, add chopped onion to grape seed oil, stir and cook until caramelized. Add chicken breasts, cooking both sides (about 1 minute each) until they have changed to a beige color. Add orange juice, prunes, ¾ cup of boiling water and saffron. Put lid on pan on high heat until it comes to a boil. Once at a boil, reduce heat to medium/low for at least 15 minutes or until contents of the pot are fully reduced to just chicken breasts with a thick caramel sauce. Add apricots to the pot 4 minutes before planning to serve. 

To serve, sprinkle slivered almonds atop each chicken breast.
