Reviews for Crispy Apricot Chicken
"Since I've not tried this, yet, giving 4 stars. Definitely sounds lie a winner. Saving in quick to cook recipe folder"
"Would really LOVE to see a review by someone who ACTUALLY MADE THIS RECIPE!"
"Delicious! I subbed liquid egg whites for butter and olive oil for canola oil. I used 4 oz chicken breasts and it calculates to 320 calories and 9 grams of fat! Will definately be making this again and again!!!"
"I eliminated the butter and used egg whites instead. I also fried the chicken in olive oil. It turned out fantastic. Super easy recipe and very yummy!"
"I love this recipe! I make it all the time. I completely remove the butter and spray my chicken with cooking spray. I also cook it in olive oil and it turns out delicious!"
"I would cut the fat & calories by substituting a beaten egg or egg substitute for the 6 tablespoons of butter (100 calories, & 11 grams of fat per tablespoon), especially because you're cooking the chicken in additional oil and butter."
"What do you suggest to serve with this? I have such a hard time with deciding on side dishes."
