  1. Combine almond flour / meal, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl.
  2. Heat a skillet with cooking oil over medium heat.
  3. Coat each piece of chicken in almond flour mixture, shaking off any excess almond flour. Place chicken in heated oil and cook until golden on each side, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  4. Set chicken aside and return pan to heat. Add apricot sauce and bring to a simmer. Simmer, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the pan, until sauce thickens slightly, 2 to 3 minutes.
  5. Add chicken back to pan and turn to coat in glaze. Continue cooking in glaze until cooked through, ~3 minutes more.
