1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 small red pepper (cored, seeded and diced)
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cumin
398 mL (14 oz) can apricot halves
salt and pepper
In a non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium high heat, and add chicken. sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, and cook until browned slightly (about 10 minutes).
