Heat oil in a large frying pan, add chicken and brown all over.
Add chicken stock, jam and soy sauce. Simmer for 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked when tested.
Remove chicken from frying pan. Add cornflour and water to sauce to thicken (equal amounts more of each if you like it thicker) and stir thoroughly. Simmer 1 minute. Return chicken to frying pan and turn to coat with sauce.
Gluten free option
Buy gluten free soy sauce and cornflour from supermarkets to ensure a gluten free option.
This is yummy!! I cooked it the night before (as I like the flavours to develop). It was very thick from standing overnight so i added a little more chicken stock to the pot and reheated. Kids loved it and want it again tonight!! - 20 Jan 2009
