Here’s a dish that’s worthy of being served in a fancy dining room! Our Dining Room Chicken recipe looks and tastes like it was made in a restaurant, but is actually easy enough to whip up anytime. Your guests won’t believe you made it yourself!
What You’ll Need:
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 chicken (3 to 4 pounds), quartered
2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
2 tablespoons brown sugar, divided
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 (16-ounce) can whole berry cranberry sauce
1 (17-ounce) can apricot halves in syrup, drained, chopped, and divided, with syrup reserved
What To Do:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a roasting pan with cooking spray. Evenly sprinkle salt and pepper over chicken.
2. In a small bowl, combine mustard and 1 tablespoon brown sugar. Rub mixture over chicken then place chicken in pan; cover with aluminum foil.
3. Bake 30 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine remaining brown sugar, the cornstarch, cranberry sauce, half the apricots, and the reserved syrup; mix well.
5. Uncover chicken and pour cranberry mixture over it; return chicken to oven and bake, uncovered, 30 to 35 additional minutes, or until juices run clear. Place chicken on a serving platter and garnish with remaining apricot pieces.
