chicken/pork + apricot preserves + dijon + which herbs/spices?
Do you add any other herbs/spices? I've seen some online recipes calling for paprika, garlic, cayenne, rosemary, and/or ginger.
Tonight, I'll be making chicken thighs with apricot jam, whole grain dijon, white wine and fresh minced ginger.
Curious to hear which herbs/spices CHs have liked the best with this combination.
If you are set on using ginger, I think garlic would be nice. If no ginger, rosemary. Those are my preferences. I imagine you'll hear lots of opinions.
If you add roasted potatoes or squash to the dinner plate, those can be seasoned with rosemary & the flavors would complement nicely. Add some sauteed greens like collard (quick saute with garlic & red pepper flakes, finished with squeeze of lemon).
Makes me wish I had some pork or poultry defrosted so I could do the same dinner!
Sage should be a good addition here. If you have it fresh, I'd do a sage chiffonade and sprinkle it over the top of your dish at the end. You could also fry it (gently) until crispy in butter and sprinkle over the top for a nice delicate herb-y crunch. Sage works so well with chicken or pork anyways, and works like a dream with sweeter tastes like roasted butternut squash. Good luck!
