Amazing Apricot Chicken

with Fingerling Potatoes and Green Beans

Read more

Chicken breasts are a reliable go-to for dinner—easy to cook and pleasing to just about every palate. But let’s face it: they can be a little boring sometimes. Which is why we’ve enlisted the help of a lively sauce made with apricot jam: it coats each bite of meat in stone-fruit sweetness and even tastes great drizzled onto the potatoes and roasted green beans on the side.

Roast Potatoes
1

Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Halve potatoes lengthwise. Toss on a baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Roast on top rack for 10 minutes (we’ll add more to the sheet then).

Once potatoes have roasted for 10 minutes, remove sheet from oven; toss and push potatoes to one side. Toss green beans on opposite side of sheet with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, and pepper. (For 4 servings, toss green beans on a second sheet; roast on middle rack.) Return to oven and roast until veggies are tender and crisped, 12-15 minutes.

Remove from heat; stir in 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4) until melted. TIP: Stir in a splash of water if sauce is very thick.
