Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts about 4-6 pieces
  • 1/4 cup apricot jam
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • Kosher salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Season both sides chicken with salt and pepper. In a heavy skillet or cast iron pan, heat oil over medium heat.

  • Mix jam, water, ginger and vinegar in a small bowl.
  • Remove chicken from pan and place on a plate.
