    Kathy228's Note:

    The breading does not get crispy, rather it combines with the apricot mixture and forms a lovely, soft coating. I like using lots of lemons, but it's a matter of personal preference. For the preserves, I used Apricot/Orange Conserve #116457, which also contains raisins and nuts.

      This was very good, Kathy! I started out w/a whole chicken, used the breast meat for Charlie's Famous Chicken Salad with Grapes (a *Kitchen Rule* of my DH) & then used the dark meat & wings for your recipe as written using apricot preserves. The fruit flavors are excellent here & it was served Fri nite w/veggie-based fried rice. DH liked it too, but said he thot he would prefer the chicken oven-crisped & the sauce served on the side. Thx for sharing this sure to be repeated recipe w/us. :-)

      Made this recipe with pork chops..I love apricot and pork together. Chops were moist and fork tender with a defintie apricot flavour but sublte lemon taste as well. Cooking time was spot on. Served them with jacket potatoes, sour cream and salad. Will definitely make again.

      I loved the flavor of this chicken! This was my first time using panko and I think it really added to the dish. Like the other reviewer I served it with Kathy228's Coconut Rice. The apricot preserves I used had HUGE chunks of apricot in them, I think the next time I make it I will run the sauce ingredients through the food processor. This is a keeper!
