Ingredients for 4 Servings

  • 1 cup of Fuel By Nature Dried Apricots 
  • 1 small chicken (ready to cook; 2 lb)
  • 1 fresh bulb of garlic
  • 1 cup green olive (without stone)
  • 1 organic orange
  • 6 branches thyme

  • 2 tbsp. capers (1 oz)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 4 tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp. honey

1. Rinse the chicken, pat dry and cut into 8 parts. Clean the garlic and cut the bulb in half horizontally. Drain the olives. Wash the orange with hot water, pat dry, thinly cut the peel and squeeze out the juice. Wash the thyme and chervil and shake dry.

2. Put the garlic with olives, orange peel, apricots, capers, 4 sprigs of thyme, bay leaves, oil and vinegar in a large bowl. Add the chicken and mix well with the marinade. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
