Apricot Ponzu Chicken

Apricot Ponzu Chicken

with Ginger Lime Rice & Roasted Green Beans

Chicken is always a dinner winner. It’s satisfying, speedy, and so versatile, which is why our chefs are always brainstorming new ways to take it to the next level. This week, they went all out by drizzling chicken cutlets with a swoon-worthy pan sauce of apricot jam, citrusy ponzu, garlic, ginger, and butter. On the side, there’s aromatic jasmine rice and tender roasted green beans. (Pssst—those sides would be equally delicious with the pan sauce.) You’d be chicken not to try it!

Small pot
Baking Sheet
Large Pan
Paper Towel



• Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. • Peel and mince ginger until you have 1 TBSP (2 TBSP for 4 servings). Peel and mince or grate garlic. Zest and quarter lime.

Cook Rice

• Melt 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) in a small pot over medium-high heat. Add half the minced ginger and cook, stirring, until softened, 1 minute. • Stir in rice, ¾ cup water (1½ cups for 4), and a big pinch of salt. Bring to boil, then cover and reduce to a low simmer. Cook until rice is tender, 15-18 minutes.

Roast Green Beans

• While rice cooks, toss green beans on a baking sheet with a large drizzle of oil, salt, and pepper. • Roast on top rack until tender and browned, 10-12 minutes.

Cook Chicken

• While green beans roast, pat chicken* dry with paper towels. Season all over with salt and pepper. • Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until browned and cooked through, 3-5 minutes per side. • Transfer to a plate. Remove pan from heat to cool slightly.

Make Sauce

• Return same pan to medium heat. Add a drizzle of oil, garlic, and remaining minced ginger; cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds. • Add ¼ cup water (1⁄3 cup for 4 servings), jam, and ponzu. Stir, scraping up any browned bits from bottom of pan, until combined and thickened, 2-3 minutes. • Remove pan from heat; stir in 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4) and a squeeze of lime juice to taste.

Finish & Serve

• Fluff rice with a fork and stir in as much lime zest as you like. Season with salt to taste. • Slice chicken crosswise. • Divide rice, chicken, and green beans between plates. Drizzle chicken with sauce. Serve with any remaining lime wedges on the side.
