Apricot Honey Chicken
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
It was Okay, My family didn't like it.
My grandkids loved this, probably because it IS sweet. Of course, if you read a recipe and it says the sauce is made with honey, preserves and orange juice, all sweet ingredients, you've got to figure it's going to be sweet and not be surprised when it is. My husband added sriracha to his and declared it just right that way.
I thought this was really good, quick and easy. I made the chicken with the potato dish on the same page which I did not really like. Next time I will serve the chicken breasts over plain white rice with broccoli or asparagus on the side.
We marinated this overnight and this came out so good and not dry. If you have leftovers keep some of the sauce so it doesn't dry out the next time you eat it.
Quick & easy
This was disgustingly sweet. I was able to fix it (didn't want to throw it out and be wasteful). I sort of made it into a spicy apricot sauce instead. I cut up this chicken into smaller bites, added some onions and red pepper to suck some up some of the sweetness. I added some red pepper spices and a little bit of hot sauce. It was better that way, but nothing like the original recipe. I would NOT recommend this recipe at all. I don't even mind sweetness with chicken usually, but this was not edible.
my kids didn't really like it...it was OK, but they pushed aside the sauce
Quick & Easy - Test chicken w/thermometer so as not to overcook.
Delicious! I used 4 tablespoons apricot preserves, 2 tablespoons orange juice, only 2 teaspoons honey and 1 teaspoon soy sauce. Have made it in a skillet and also in the crockpot. Doubled the sauce for the crockpot so there would be enough sauce for with rice.
It tastes great! Just be careful to be sure the chicken doesn't overcook because it'll be dry
