Caramelized Lemon and Apricot Chicken https://www.metro.ca/userfiles/image/recipes/Poulet-caramelise-citron-abricot-3852.jpg PT15M PT40M PT4H25M
Make a cut along the middle of the chicken's back, along its entire length. Split the chicken along the cut to flatten (you can ask the butcher to do it). Place the chicken in an airtight container and add all marinade ingredients. Refrigerate approximately 3 1/2 hrs. Remove the chicken from the marinade. Set the marinade aside. Preheat the barbecue to high. In a small pan, melt the butter on medium and sauté the shallot and garlic. Deglaze with the marinade and simmer to reduce by a third. Incorporate the honey and simmer approx. 3 min. Set the lemon and apricot sauce aside. Salt and pepper the chicken then sear it on the barbecue for 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking approximately 35 min. for meat that is cooked just right. After approx. 20 min., brush frequently with the lemon and apricot sauce. Avoid brushing with sauce during the final 5 minutes of cooking.
