Chicken Tenders with Apricot Barbecue Sauce

1 Comment | Written on June 26, 2014 at 5:00 am , by

This week the food world has been buzzing about the hottest trend coming out of Los Angeles – CocoaChicken.  That’s right, chocolate fried chicken.

Now, I am going to reserve judgement since I haven’t had a chance to taste this new concoction.  It may sound crazy, but everyone is saying it is fantastic!  Think about it, we love the classic Mexican mole chicken also made with bittersweet cocoa.  Maybe it’s not such a wild idea after all?

Today’s recipe is similar in a wild but wonderful way.  These chicken tenders are baked not fried, and they also have a very unique secret ingredient!
