"I was hesitant to try this because of the apricot preserves, but boy am I glad I stepped out of my comfort zone! The combination of the preserves and barbecue sauce is so unique, and totally surprising. This dish is easy and delicious, and my family loves it!"

"Very good. Used whole boneless breasts instead of chunks. Didn't have onion soup mix so used dried minced onions. This is good using pork tenderloin or pork chops. Didn't brown before baking when using chicken."
