This is a simple and delightful way to prepare chicken. I changed nothing and served with buttered noodles as per Evie*'s suggestion. Thank you for posting, Evie*!
I love cooking with fruit but we really didn't like this. Just didn't feel the favors complimented each other. Would not make again, sorry.
Ok-this was SUPER yummy, I was a little hesitant but the apricot is such a nice compliment to the lemon pepper. MMMM! Thanks!
