Apricot Chicken

Quick, easy and cheap - perfect for a tight grocery budget.


  • 2 chicken breast fillets, skin off and diced (about 500g)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 pkt French onion soup
  • 410g can apricot nectar


  1. Melt the butter and then brown the chicken well on all sides
  2. Mix the French onion soup with the apricot nectar.
  3. Pour over the chicken, lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally so it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.
  4. Serve over Savoury Rice


You can make this dish cheaper by using generic French onion soup - I use Coles brand, which I buy in bulk at the beginning of each year when I do my Once-a-Year grocery shop.

Watch the price of chicken and if thigh fillets are cheaper, replace the breast fillets with 500g thigh fillets.

Cost: $1.20 per serve
