Step by Step Method

Step 1

Season the chicken cutlets with pepper on both sides.

Step 2

In a small bowl, whisk together the apricot jam, soy sauce, sriracha hot sauce, and water until well combined. Set aside.

Step 3

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the avocado oil or olive oil. Allow the oil to get hot.

Step 4

Carefully place the chicken cutlets in the skillet and sear them for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.

Step 5

Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the apricot jam mixture to the skillet. Stir well to combine with the remaining oil and drippings.

Step 6

Return the chicken to the skillet and coat each cutlet with the sauce. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together and the sauce to thicken slightly.

Step 7

Add the butter to the skillet and gently swirl it around until melted.

Step 8

Remove the skillet from the heat and let the chicken rest in the sauce for a couple of minutes to absorb the flavors.

Step 9

Serve the chicken with the sauce spooned over the top.
