    justcallmetoni's Note:

    A simple and quick main dish designed for busy nights or cooking novices. Add a steamed vegetable and rice and a tasty dinner is on the table in 30 minutes or less. I like to include the hot sauce not to make this a spicy dish but to cut the sweetness just a bit. Planning to try this on the grill this summer as it should work very well. (WW 4 pts)

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the broiler. Line the broiler pan with aluminum foil. (The foil is a must for quick clean up.) Spray the broiler-pan rack with nonstick vegetable cooking spray.
    2. 2
      In a cup, stir together the preserves or marmalade, ketchup, and vinegar. Add the tabasco if you are planning to include.
    3. 3
      Season the chicken breasts with the thyme and salt and pepper. Arrange the chicken breasts, skin side down, on the prepared pan and broil 4 to 6 inches from the heat for 5 minutes. Turn and broil for 3 minutes. (If you are using larger chicken breasts, adjust the cooking time.)
    4. 4
      Brush each chicken breast with some of the fruit glaze and broil for 1 to 2 minutes, until the glaze is bubbly and the chicken is no longer pink in the thickest part. Turn the chicken (it should now be skin side up) and brush on the rest of the glaze an broil an additional minute.
    5. 5
      Remove from the broiler and serve.

      I wish I could give this simple to make recipe 10 stars. I will add additional hot sauce next time. I used the recommended rice wine vinegar. I baked mine at 375 for 35 minutes and they came out perfect. What great flavors. You have a winner with this one Toni. Thanks

      We were divided on this one: two loved it, two didn't like the thyme. The apricot glaze is fantastic and cooked to a nice glossy coating. And it was so easy and quick, and so elegant! I suggest taste-testing your family for thyme and hot sauce before going full into it, but both are really optional and I'll cheerfully recommend the glaze to anyone wanting it to look like they worked harder than they did. Made by LL's DH in fifteen minutes, using chicken tenders in place of whole breasts. Reviewed for 1-2-3-Hit Wonders.

      Oh yeah, oh yeah!! This is really great! Anyone who knows me knows I like chicken breasts & apricots, & this recipe brings it all together! I not only doubled the glaze ingredients, but I added an extra couple of drops of Tabasco sauce, & 5-6 chopped up dried apricots, & I was in orbit over this dish! I'll definitely be making this one again & again! Many thanks!
