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.

Decadent flavors. I tried this substituting boneless thighs and legs for the whole chicken and cutting the recipe in half. I cooked covered in the oven for only 14 minutes. Overall, it worked but I'll need to tweak the salt and portions a bit more next time if I make substitutions. The garlic was my favorite part! I had leftover spaetzle to go with it and it paired nicely.
