If I had added soy sauce to the apricot jam, this would be a Chinese/Asian dish. However, only nutmeg was added, hence the dish is European. The caramelization on the chicken from the sugar in the jam is just amazing.

To be honest, I was not going to put this cake on MCW, but someone special asked me to, so here it is.
