Chicken Breasts Mandalay
4 chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp curry powder
3 Tbsp flour
4 Tbsp canola oil
1 Tbsp sugar
1 cup beef stock or broth
1 large onion chopped
1 jar baby food apricots (one tall or two short)
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp soy sauce
Note: Baby food packaging has changed over the years and you can't always find the strained apricots. Sometimes you can find a cobo of apricots and applesauce which works ok. If not, use canned apricots and put in a food processor until they resemble baby food. Use about 3/4 cup of this.)

Remove chicken to casserole dish or baking pan.

I have been making this recipe for over 40 years. My family loves this dish served with rice and a green vegetable. It is fairly easy to make but is elegant and delicious enough for company. The sauce over the chicken is delicious spooned over rice and the chicken.
