  3. When the butter is melting and bubbling, place the chicken in the pan. Cook for 5 minutes on one side, then flip the chicken. Add the onions and garlic to the pan and cook for 5 minutes. Add the soy sauce and vinegar, cooking for another minute before adding all of the chicken stock.
  4. Gently stir the apricot preserves into the liquid and sprinkle the sliced almonds on top of the chicken.
  5. Transfer the pan to the oven. After 10 minutes, spoon the liquid over the chicken, then return to the oven for another 10 minutes.
  6. Sprinkle with fresh parsley before serving warm.
