Sarah’s Apricot Pistachio Chicken

My cousin Sarah (Abe) Mamiye – (who is- by the way – known for her gourmet cooking)- sent in a recipe that she adapted from her sister-in-law Carol Azizo. The recipe will serve at least 16 people.

4 2 lb whole. chickens
1 jar of dip-n-joy
1 jar of apricot preserves
handful of dried apricots
toasted pistachios.

Place chicken in roaster and marinate with lots of chopped onion, chopped garlic, salt and pepper. Cook at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. While the chicken cooks prepare the sauce by melting the dip-n-joy, apricot preserves and dried apricots in a pot. Once the chicken is cooked, pour the sauce on it and add the toasted pistachios. Put back in the oven for an additional 20 minutes then serve.

  • Thanks for all the lovely recipes.
    I live in South Africa and am not sure what Dip ‘n-joy is – Is it like a barbecue sauce or like Duck Sauce – would really like to know as I am going to try this next Shabbat

    All the best and thanks again
