    breezermom's Note:

    This makes a very quick and easy meal....just add a salad and bread, or a vegetable or two! Garnish the chicken with lime wedges and fresh basil sprigs for presentation. Its great for a busy week night, because total prep and cooking time can be kept to under 40 minutes! This recipe came from Bellingham Covenant Church's cookbook in Bellingham, WA.

      Great way to fix the chicken breasts that I often prepare, & I do enjoy the combo of Dejon mustard & apricot! I did use just 4 breasts (large ones) but kept the other ingredients the same! Absolutely delicious! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Everyday Is a Holiday]

      Delish and easy too -- what more can you ask for? My chicken did take about twice as long to cook as indicated in the recipe, but it was still a bit frozen. Served with some frozen veggies cooked in the micro for a fast and easy dinner! Thanks for sharing!

      This is so yummy. I loved the sauce. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs (5). I did half the recipe. Thanks Breezermom :) Made for 123 hit wonders
