{Meal Plan} Apricot Chicken

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife


We had Miss 6’s big birthday bash yesterday here at home.  It was a great day all the kids had an absolute ball.  I nearly thought I had to entertain 22 kids indoors as it was raining all morning, but by 3pm the sun was shining and the pool party was a great success!  Now all my kids birthday’s are over for the year.  3 birthday’s all within 2 weeks…sheesh, lol:)

Here is this weeks meal plan:

Monday –  Chicken  Bolognese – new family favourite – recipe below

Tuesday Apricot Chicken with potato and vegetables

Wednesday – Mince Pasta Bake

Thursday – Spinach and Feta Pie with salad

Friday – Beef Stir fry

Saturday – something easy been a big day

Sunday –  Roast Beef and potatoes with vegetables

Baking – Chewy raisin and oat biscuits – very healthy – recipe below

Katrina i can’t get the recipe for the apricot chicken… keeps taking me to page not found.

Biscuits sound fantastic, planning on whipping up a batch for the kids lunches tomorrow.

Hi Leila, I have fixed up the link…sorry. I used chicken breast instead of thigh fillets, the kids loved it.

Thanks for the chicken bolognese recipe – I didn't close the freezer properly last night and the chicken mince was half defrosted so this recipe was perfect timing 🙂

Great timing I hope you enjoyed it!

Thanks Katrina 🙂 i tend to use thigh mainly but have just found a new butcher who does bulk meats cheaper so i have a few kilos of breast meat (why not when i can buy it for $7 a kilo, min 3kg buy, instead of $10-$13 depending on the week)

Now to work out what to feed hubby while i make apricot chicken for kids and I.

Biscuits haven't been made yet, my 10 year old son wants to make them this afternoon 🙂

We love apricot chicken. But I like to use Dutch curry and Rice soup mix instead of French Onion. Give it a go, it’s not spicy at all, just a more robust flavour and the sauce thickens more too

Just a variation on the apricot chicken recipe…

You can omit the oil, and put the chicken, apricot nectar and soup mix into a microwave proof dish that has a lid. Microwave on high for 15 minutes, stir the mix; if the chicken isn’t ready, microwave for a further 5 mins.
