  • Place the chicken thighs in a shallow baking dish. Drain the peaches and apricots, reserving the juice in a small bowl. Stir the vinegar into the juice, and adjust the amount to taste if necessary. Season with curry powder and garam masala and stir to blend. Arrange the peaches and apricots around the chicken thighs, and pour the flavored syrup over all. Sprinkle the pistachios on top.

  • Bake uncovered for 1 hour in the preheated oven, until sauce has thickened and chicken juices run clear.

Great recipe! Loved the flavor of the middle eastern spices. I didn't have pistachios or apricots so left them out. Used no sugar added peaches so I added a touch of brown sugar and some cinnamon. It was wonderful. I did think an hour was a little long for the chicken usually 30 min is enough for chicken at 375. Read More

I loved the pistachios with the indian spices but the sauce did not thicken! If you want plain chicken with baked fruit and some syrupy fruit juice than you'll love this recipe. The flavors were there but it definitely needs some works! Read More

Tender chicken and lovely baked fruit but I agree with other reviewers that the sauce needs work. I thickened it with cornstarch and it needs a bit of salt. I liked it and the family did too. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
