Lovely simple supper recipe for Baked Chicken with Apricots and Prunes
10-12 chicken drumsticks
200 grams dried prunes
200 dried apricots
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce (this is to add a bit of umami)
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup vegetable oil (this can be omitted)
3-4 crushed garlic cloves
1-2 teaspoons paprika
Mix all the ingredients for the sauce. Arrange the chicken in a baking dish and add the apricots and prunes between them. Pour the sauce over the chicken and bake for about one hour.
It is also possible to add all the ingredients to an oven proof pot and bring it to a boil first. Continue cooking in the oven at 180 C. This method shortens the cooking time and helps to keep the chicken from drying out.
