Want to make a delicious chicken recipe with simple ingredients?
- 1 whole chicken, patchcocked
- chicken soup
- apricot jam
- lemon juice
- cooking oil (I used olive oil)
- dried mustard
- black pepper
This chicken is very simple and made with real ingredients but has great flavor. Flavored with delicious spices, the sweetness of the jam makes this chicken really delicious.
Can you make the perfect recipe?
no. As you can see in the picture, this chicken was slightly charred during cooking. I don’t know exactly what happened, but it could have had a little more sauce on that part. Either way, most food bloggers would have remade it. But we don’t do that. We are not perfect cooks, nor have we ever claimed to be. A family shared daily food and fun, and that’s what chicken is all about.
If I make this recipe again in the future, I’ll try to take another photo, but I’m not going to remake the whole chicken for the photo. The chicken was delicious and everyone loved it so I am sharing the recipe. Photo perfect or not!
What do you eat this chicken with?
We loved it because this dish is so versatile. The first night I had it with braised potatoes and a side salad. On the second night, I cut the chicken and made a delicious chopped salad full of vegetables. Here are some aspects for you to enjoy.
