½ cup vegetable oil

Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste.

Set a large heavy skillet over high heat and pour in oil.

Place chicken pieces skin side down in a single layer.

Reduce heat to medium and slowly brown, turning once a while, no need too often, until browned evenly on all sides.

Pour 4 cups water over chicken, change heat to medium-high, and bring to a simmer.

Stir in dried apricots, apricot preserves, tamarind, sugar and chipotle sauce, including 1 or more chipotle peppers if needed.

Simmer, adjusting heat as needed, until sauce has thickened enough to coat chicken, 30 to 40 minutes.

Season with more salt and black pepper to taste, serve warm.
