    Fantastic recipe! Cooked it the other night for the family -- lovely taste of the apricots rather than using canned Apricot Nectar. Definately will be cooking this again. Thanks for the recipe  -  18 Mar 2012


    Excellent flavor. I find that oven cooked chicken is so often dry. So I cooked one pound boneless thighs (that's what I had--will try with breasts next time) in a skillet, about 6 minutes per side and spooned the apricot glaze over them during the last 2 minutes. Made the glaze with 1/4 cup preserves, 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar, and 2 tsp brown sugar. (Will probably add 1/4 tsp Dijon next time.) Removed them to a serving plate and poured the pan juices over. Very good and moist. And the total time was about 15 minutes.  -  07 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Super easy, but my husband and I found this tasteless. The cooking time is too long for boneless chicken.  -  31 May 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
