These golden fruits are also as ‘good as gold’ nutritionally. An outstanding source of beta-carotene, apricots provide considerable vitamin C and a healthy amount of potassium.
It's a good idea to substitute chopped dried apricots for raisins in some of your favourite cake or biscuit recipes: the apricots contain nearly 100 times more beta-carotene.
First, this is very "asian" tasting. A word of caution...put the apricot slices into the sauce right before you plan to serve because they cooked up VERY quickly and, unfortunately, mine turned to mush. This is not the recipe's problem, just something you need to be aware of. I used chicken tenders, so I just cooked them in the skillet, no need to go into the oven. I had beautiful, perfectly ripe apricots and was a little disappointed at the lack of apricot flavor. Sesame oil is very strong, and if I were to make this again, I'd cut that back, as it was almost overpowering IMO. - 28 May 2013
