Fruit Jam Balsamic Chicken with Rice

This recipe is great! It’s a festive one pot meal that looks beautiful and my girls love it. 

I have adapted the original recipe below to include Feingold diet adjustments.

Ingredients 

1 cup mixed rice. I use Lunderberg’s

1 1/2 cups broth or water

1/4 dried fruit– I’ve used dates, figs or mango, which are Feingold friendly, but original recipe called for dried cherries

3 tablespoons slivered almonds, but I have also used walnuts or sunflower seeds

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper and garlic 

1/4 cup jam — original recipe called for cherry jam, but I use mango, fig or apricot or even raspberry.

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 

Instructions 

Place rice, broth, dried fruit, nuts, and a pinch of salt in pan.

Mix jam, vinegar and salt and pepper.

Place chicken on top. Sprinkle spices on chicken and add half of the glaze.

Roast in 425*F oven until juices run clear and liquid is absorbed. 

Add the rest of the glaze a half hour before done. To save time I have also skipped this step and put the glaze on all at once.

Simple and easy.

      Thank you for your kind words. This is one of those simple, easy and yet elegant dishes. I thought it would be too simple to serve outside casual dining. But, one time I had a family with many children over. Kinda like “good to the last drop,” they ate the whole thing.
