    1. In a saucepan, combine the apricots, sherry, red wine, zest and 3 tablespoons sugar. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 20 minutes.
    2. Melt butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Coat the chicken with flour and brown on both sides, about 8 minutes total. Remove and set aside.
    3. Add the pearl onions to the frying pan and sprinkle with remaining sugar. Cook until lightly browned, about 7 minutes. Add the stock, salt, pepper and apricots then bring to a boil.
    4. Return the chicken to the pan, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook 15 more minutes. Remove the zest and serve.
