  1. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat and brown the chicken thighs on both sides, 5 to 8 minutes per side. Remove the chicken thighs and set aside. In the hot skillet, cook and stir the onions until softened, about 5 minutes.
  2. Pour the apricot halves, chili sauce, brown sugar, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, and black pepper into a blender, and pulse several times to puree. Pour the mixture into the skillet with the onions, bring to a boil, and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer the sauce until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Return the chicken thighs to the sauce, and spoon sauce over the chicken. Simmer until the chicken is tender and no longer pink inside, 15 to 20 minutes. Serve chicken topped with sauce.

It was an interesting dish, but there was not a whole lot of flavor. Perhaps if I used apricots in a heavy syrup versus a light.

When I make this kind of glazed chicken, I use a jar of Saucy Susan. It has alot of flavor, makes a wonderful glaze, very easy to find and saves a bunch of time.

this is a pretty good dish. we used boneless breasts instead of chicken thighs. we also left out the cardamom. maybe that would've made it better, but it was still ok
