Quick Apricot Chicken
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 15 min.
Absolutely a hit at my house. I did add a handful of frozen broccoli, peas, and carrots just to have some veggies. Total bliss. Do yourself a favor and try this recipe - you can add more heat if you wish - the possibilities are endless! 5?
Made this for the family a few nights ago. I made it exactly as written, but the sauce seems a little flat and one-dimensional. Needs to have about 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes added to the simmering sauce, need to use fresh ginger instead of ground if you have it, and I definitely thought it needed some acid (I'll have to try Gail's suggestion of rice vinegar - sounds like that's just what it needed). Oh, and 1 TBSP of cornstarch is really excessive - 1 tsp should suffice. I had to thin the sauce after all of that cornstarch. All of that aside, (I added cayenne after the fact) my family adored this recipe! My 11yo even stole my leftovers for lunch the next day!!! (she's such a brat! ) Definitely adding this to the regular rotation! P.S. Forgot to mention that the thought of microwaved chicken horrifies me, so I browned the chicken in a pan with cooking spray, removed that and added red bell peppers and cooked those for a few minutes, added the sauce ingredients, then added the chicken back in. Served on brown rice)
I made this the other day and it was so good I could not stop eating it. I made it on the stovetop and might have snuck in a few extra cashews because I love them also I used cooked left over chicken. It eas excellent!
We loved this and so simple to make. For a change I had all the ingredients in the house.
This was a tasty and easy quick dinner. After reaading reviews about it being too sweet I added a tsp of rice vinegar, and think the sweetness was just right. I happened to have a can of bean sprouts so I drained and added them, which upped the veggie content and some texture. Served on rice and family added red pepper flakes as wanted. Also, it was super easy to cut frozen breast tenders into strips for the chicken.. We'll definitely make this again!
This was a hit for dinner tonight. I made it according to the directions, anditwas ready in less than 30 minutes. This recipe is a keeper!
I doubled the sauce ingredients and left off the cashews and green pepper (which I don't like). Also added stir-fry vegetables. Turned out very well, and as the author stated, tasted very good the next day.
I cooked this on the stovetop and it was delicious.
This recipe was a big hit with my family!
Easy and good. I love the ease. I've also done in the regular oven in a larger quantity and it was great! Trick is getiting the chicken done without overcooking.
