Apricot Chicken

This is an old jewish recipe. My wife heard about it from a friend in Houston who used it to close the deal with her significant other. It worked with me too. I loved it so much I married the cook. I have it cold for lunch as a brown bagger at school a couple times a week, hot at dinner once or twice and cold from the fridge when I get home in the afternoon and need some protein to keep me going till dinner.

Instructions

  1. 1Remove the skin from 10 chicken thighs WITH the bone still in. Add a little oil to a nonstick large skillet and gently brown the chicken thighs.
  2. 2Mix the mayo and ketchup together to create a homemade Russian dressing. Add a good brand of apricot preserves to the Russian dressing. Add a pinch of cumin.
  3. 3Lay the browned thighs in a large pyrex baking dish. Brush the Apricot and Russian
    dressing mixture over and under the thighs.
  4. 4Bake for 45 to 50 minutes in a pre-heated 345 degree oven . Remove and let cool
