Chicken en Cocotte with Apricots, Saffron and Tarragon

Tender and mild chicken gets a big savory-sweet flavor boost when accompanied by dried apricots and silky braised shallots. Saffron threads give the sauce a golden hue and a slightly minerally, subtly floral flavor and aroma. Serve the chicken with couscous, egg noodles or rice pilaf.

Tip

Don't use unsulphured dried apricots. Their brown color will make the dish appear drab and dull. Use regular dried apricots instead.
