Reviews forQuick Apricot Chicken
"It's fast, and quite good. Not the best, but for the short time involved, it's worth making, tasty. I needed to get dinner ready in 15 minutes last night. I was able to make the rice and the main course in that time. I added onions and peppers. I also added more cashews and regular soy sauce. I rinsed the nuts because I thought they might be too salty, but I won't rinse them in the future. It wasn't too salty."
"I was somewhat disappointed in this recipe because there were so many positive reviews. I found it to be overly sweet but definitely edible. I am keeping the leftovers to see if I can tweek them a little tomorrow."
"Great quick recipee"

"I didn't have apricot jam and tried a different flavor. It was good but I imagine it would taste great if I stuck with the original recipe."
"My husband and I really enjoy this recipe!I have even made it for company and recieved many requests to make it again. Its very easy- don't leave out the cashews, they make a great addition to the recipe!"
"i followed recipe with ingredients - but cooked on stovetop instead of microwave. i thought it was just average - nothing special."
