This was sensational...super easy to make...it's 9p+ on weight watchers but I think you could bring it down a bit if you chose smaller breasts. I really enjoyed this great flavor I will be making this again!

Delicious! I made a stove-top version. Used thin-sliced boneless chicken breasts. Stirred together the sauce ingredients, using instant minced onion stirred into the sauce. Set that aside and melted 1 tblsp butter in nonstick skillet; browned the chicken breasts, then poured the sauce over them. Simmered them briefly, covered, till done. Removed them from the sauce and boiled the sauce in the skillet till slightly reduced; poured the sauce over the breasts and sprinkled with toasted sliced almonds. Only thing I might do differently is to add red pepper flakes. Thanks for a marvelous recipel

Made this last night with peaches instead of apricot and it was fantastic. Great for company as it's easy but tastes fantastic.
