MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 5, 2013

"I used apricot preserves. I also substituted honey mustard for the Dijon mustard. The chicken was so moist and tender! This was terrific."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 15, 2011

"I used apricot preserves and I pounded the chicken breasts until they were of equal thickness so they would cook through. They were great."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 23, 2010

"I needed something quick and easy and ran across this recipe. I didn't have actual apricots at home so I used Apricot-Pineapple Preserves instead. It still turned out good, the chicken was very moist & tender. I will be making it again."
