Hi, Jennie. What you say makes sense. Also, I love apricots too.

Charmion, your upcoming party sounds delightful.
Last night we had Quarantine BBQ chicken

Order ribs from a barbecue place. Save the little plastic cups of sauce they give you.

Trim excess fat and skin from 3 or 4 chicken thighs. Kitchen shears are good for this.

Warm the chicken to room temperature in the microwave at half-power for about 4 minutes. Helps it brown better and kills the germs (I figure.)

Meanwhile, cut a sweet potato or two into slices about 1/2 to 3/4 inches thick. No need to peel them.

Put a small amt of oil in a non-stick skillet. Put in the chicken, skin side down and brown it. Then turn it over and gently spread the BBQ sauce on the browned side.

Put in the sweet potatoes, mostly around the outside of the pan. Or you can cook the sweet potatoes separately. It depends on your mood.

Cover and simmer till chicken is tender and sweet potatoes are cooked.

You can eat it at this stage, but I like to chill the food overnight and remove the chicken fat which has risen to the top and solidified. Then I reheat to serve.
