instead of canned apricots I used dried apricots soaked in orange juice ,it reminds me of a moroccan dish I once had.

My husband will only eat white chicken baked but I slipped this one in since he has now been diagnosed with Level 2 diabetes. Believe it or not he really enjoyed this and so did I. I only made 2 chicken breasts since I also have him on a diet of sorts. Thanks for something different.
