This was just ok. The sauce was tasty enough, but the hunk of chicken was still rather bland.

I originally rated this recipe on 4/8/10. In response to "kpmorrow," peach preserves can be substituted for the apricot preserves. The recipe is equally delicious. Also, toasting the almonds in the oven before use gives them more flavor. I have used this recipe over and over and have received numerous requests for it. Absolutely delicious!

They weren't lying when they said this is a quick and delicious recipe. I was amazed that such a simple glaze could do so much for a plain chicken breast.

This recipe is definitely a keeper! The apricot preserves give the chicken a slight tint of sweetness and flavor. The almonds gives the chicken a slight crunchy taste. I used regular chicken broth rather than low-sodium. Absolutely delicious!

I love this recipe. It is so easy to make. I substituted honey for the honey mustard. (I don't like mustard in anything) I will be making this again real soon.
