Apricot Glazed Chicken with Potatoes & Asparagus


Curry powder is a powerhouse ingredient because it combines a medley of flavorful spices—usually turmeric, fenugreek, coriander and peppers—all in one jar. Increase the heat in this dish by using a hot or red curry powder.

  • 1 ¾ pounds bone-in chicken thighs, skin removed, trimmed

  • ¾ teaspoon salt, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 12 ounces baby potatoes, halved

  • 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • ¼ cup apricot jam

  • 2 teaspoons mustard seeds, toasted

  • 1 teaspoon minced peeled fresh ginger

  • 1 teaspoon curry powder

  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • Lime wedges for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.

  2. Arrange chicken on a large rimmed baking sheet. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Toss potatoes with 2 teaspoons oil and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Spread around the chicken. Roast for 15 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, combine jam, mustard seeds, ginger and curry powder in a small bowl. Toss asparagus with the remaining 2 teaspoons oil and 1/4 teaspoon salt in the medium bowl.

  4. After the first 15 minutes of roasting, stir the potatoes and add the asparagus to the pan in a single layer. Top the chicken with the jam mixture. Continue roasting until the vegetables are tender and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the chicken without touching bone registers 165°F, 15 to 18 minutes more. Sprinkle the chicken and vegetables with cilantro and serve with lime wedges, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
