Recipe

With just a few ingredients you can create a special chicken dinner. Serve this with rice and a stir-fried vegetable.

Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ½ cup apricot preserves
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions

Directions

Trim chicken and pound to an even ½-inch thickness between two sheets of plastic wrap. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook 2 minutes per side.

Stir together the apricot preserves, soy sauce and ginger. Pour over the chicken and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat and cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until chicken is cooked through, turning over once to coat with sauce. Drizzle with sesame oil. Serve sprinkled with green onions.

    This was so easy and absolutely delicious! Served with noodles because that was what was on hand but would recommend brown rice. Will definitely become a go-to recipe for me!

    Made this chicken last night. It turned out pretty well...my fiance loved it! I put it over israeli couscous and served it with stir-fried broccoli.
