Reviews for Apricot Cranberry Chicken
"My husband loves this recipe and has asked that we have it more often. I also only use 2 chicken breasts to make it a meal for 2."
"Both DH and I gave this dish an emphatic thumbs-up! I cut it in half for the two of us and used sweet orange marmalade because I was out of apricot preserves. Definitely a keeper."
"I always try and make a recipe just as it is the first round because a tiny change can make big differences. My family loved this recipe and it was very easy. I added a bit more salt and pepper to the final dish because it was very sweet. It was probably because of my brand of apricot preserves. It was still delicious though and reminded me of the fall weather approaching."
