  3. Place the chicken in the marinade and refrigerate over night.
  4. Melt the apricot preserves in a small saucepan until smooth.
  5. In a small serving bowl, mix the mustard and hot water until smooth.
  6. Blend the apricots and lemon juice into the mustard mixture and garnish, if desired.
  7. Set aside to cool.
  8. Mix the ground almonds and sesame seeds.
  9. Heat about two inches of the oil over medium heat in a large skillet to about 350 degrees.
  10. Dip the chicken pieces into the almond-sesame mixture and deep fry several at a time until golden brown on each side, about one minute.
