Apricots are everywhere right now and Alex Daynes, from My Own Meal Plan, said she wanted to create an easy recipe that calls for this seasonal ingredient. You can use fresh apricots if you want to mash them up before adding to the sauce, or just use any jar of apricot jam!
The Sweet & Sour Chicken is ready in 30 minutes or less.
