Serves: 4
  • 1 pound chicken breasts or thighs, boneless, skinless
  • 8 oz package fresh white or brown mushrooms or a mix of the two
  • 2 small onion (white or red), sliced or chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 T olive oil
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 1 T apricot jam
  • 1 T Dijon mustard
  1. Slice onions and mushrooms. Mince garlic.
  2. Pour the olive oil into a large Dutch Oven placed on a burner set to med high. Sauté onions for a 3-4 minutes to soften. Stir frequently. Add garlic, reduce heat to medium and stir constantly for 1 minute. Add the mushrooms and continue cooking until the mushrooms soften.
  3. Add a little orange juice to deglaze the pan. Stir and continue to cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Move the onions and mushrooms to the side of the pan and place chicken pieces in the middle of the pan.
  5. Sauté until brown, turn and brown the other side. You may need to add more orange juice to prevent sticking.
  6. When the chicken is well browned, stir in the rest of the orange juice, apricot jam, and mustard.
  7. Leave everything to simmer, covered, for about 20 minutes or longer until chicken is cooked through (prick with a fork to make sure juices run clear). Remove from heat and allow the chicken to set, covered, for 10 minutes.
  8. Serve with a cool and colorful salad.
