Ricardo's recipe:Grilled Chicken with Saffron and Apricots 



  1. In a large non-stick skillet, brown the chicken in the butter and oil for about 5 to 6 minutes per side or until fully cooked. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside on a warm plate.
  2. In the same skillet, brown the onion and bell pepper. Add oil, as needed. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the apricots, lemon juice, honey, and saffron and stir to combine. Add the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce until the sauce is syrupy. Adjust the seasoning.
  3. In a bowl, combine the spinach with a little olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Thinly slice the chicken. In four plates, serve the chicken over the spinach and top with the apricot mixture. 


Saffron is a spice that is composed of a variety of stigmas of crocus. If you do not have any on hand, you can simply omit it in this recipe.
