Reviews for Saucy Apricot Chicken
"This was very good. We really liked the sweetness from the preserves. Plus, 4 ingredients?! Simple enough for a tasty meal!!!"
"Good with thick cut boneless pork chops too. We like rice for the sauce."
"Had this for the first time tonight for dinner. It is so easy to make, and my husband and I really enjoyed the fruity flavor. White wine went really well with it. Will be making this again. Thank you for sharing this recipe."
"have been making this for a long time, Yummy, and easy."
"We really enjoyed this dish. As there are only 2 at home to cook for, I did make a few adjustments but this recipe always turns out beautifully if you don't overcook. Thank you for a great recipe!"
"I also added russian dressing and only 1 jar of apricot. I cooked on low for 6-7 hrs and then served over whole grain brown rice. MMmmmmm!"
"I could not find Apricot Preserves so I used Apricot Jelly. I would use only 1 jar next time and not cook the chicken for the required time. It was very good and will make it again"
"Four to 5 hours, even on low, is way too long to cook chicken breasts, which overcook so easily. I would reduce the cooking time to 2-2 1/2 hrs. Also, the sauce did not come out looking anything like the picture. Otherwise it tasted OK, maybe you'll like it."
