8387592742_f6164fd5a8_oHappy Sunday everyone! The leaves are falling, the air is cool and crisp, the sun goes down earlier…….all these things and more spells out FALL here in New England. When I think of Fall I think of warm comforting dishes, crock pot meals, or hot and savory soups!! Well all that and more is what the #SundaySupper has in store for you this week! Our host is Amy over at kimchi Mom, thanks for hosting this fabulous event Amy!!  As soon as I saw this theme, I thought of a recipe I found this past Summer, I wanted something that melted in my mouth but was easy to make in one dish! Something I serve over rice, we are a big rice family here! If you want that Chinese food, fresh tasting, moist, melt in your mouth dish than this one is for you! It was super easy to make and of course I’m a big fan of easy peasy!! If your anything like me and like to prepare dishes ahead of time on the weekend for your busy week ahead, make your rice and store it in the fridge, you can make this dish even easier by having it all ready to serve this awesome chicken and veggie mixture over! I’ve made this dish before and also served it with smashed sweet potatoes, I liked it better with the rice but that’s just me!

Ingredients:

3 tbsp of Apricot reserves
2 tbsp of ketchup
1 tbsp of soy sauce
1 tbsp of rice vinegar
1/2 tsp of ground ginger

What to do: 

Preheat oven to 400F. Whisk together the reserves, ketchup, soy sauce, vinegar and ginger together in a small bowl. Add one tbsp of water.

Toss chicken with 3 heaping tbsp of the mixture and place in a baking dish. I lined mine with tinfoil so it was less of a mess.

Toss carrots and peppers around the chicken and pour remaining sauce over the whole dish. Sprinkle half of scallions on top.

Cover with tinfoil and bake for 25-30 min or until chicken is cooked through. Serve over hot rice and sprinkle with the remaining scallions.

  1. Ginger and soy sauce always makes chicken so very tasty. But I love the idea of adding apricot preserves to the mix. Thank you for this wonderful recipe =)

  2. I love dishes like this when I have company, Tammi, because they are so easy to prepare ahead and then just pop in the oven. What lovely flavors and colors!

  3. So many great recipes this week! Sweet and sour pork (or chicken) is my favorite Chinese restaurant stand-by. This seems so much easier to make…will be making this soon!
