Paleo Apricot Chicken Recipe



  • 24 pounds chicken (breasts or thighs)
  • 16 oz apricots (roughly 2 1/4 c)
  • 1/2 c water
  • 1/2 c balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 c olive oil
  • 1 T rosemary
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 t salt + pepper to taste


  1. Blend all ingredients except the chicken together until smooth. I have a 9-cup food processor, and I had to do it in 2 batches to avoid splashing. If you’re one of the lucky ones out there with a high tech blender like a Vitamix, I would use it for this recipe.
  2. Pour the sauce into a large saucepan. Place the chicken on top, and stir slightly to coat the chicken.
  3. Cook on medium high for 2-3 minutes to brown one side.
  4. Flip the chicken, put a lid on the pot (important!!) and turn down the stove top to medium low and cook for 10 minutes.
  5. Turn the stovetop off but keep the lid on for 10 more minutes- NO peeking!
  6. Once it’s done, stir the sauce. This is your gracy/ sauce for your chicken. Serve each breast with a generous portion of the sauce.
  7. Enjoy!
