With all the variants of apricot chicken that appear on Recipezaar, this one doesn't seem to have been posted yet ... I got this from "Your Family Will Love It!", put out by Prevention magazine some time in the mid-1990s. It's my go-to recipe when my oven isn't free (and we don't have access to a grill). Couldn't be easier, and I always have the ingredients in the house. One 4-ounce portion is 4 WW points.
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
- 1⁄4 cup Dijon mustard (I use a homemade Dijon that is VERY spicy)
- 3 tablespoons apricot preserves
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce (reduced-sodium)
- 1 tablespoon scallion, finely chopped
- 2⁄3 cup water
- In a large no-stick skillet, combine the water, mustard, preserves, soy sauce, and scallions. Mix thoroughly.
- Add chicken. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium or medium-low. Gently simmer for 15-18 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
- If the sauce becomes too thick while cooking, just add a few more tablespoons of water.
This was great! I really enjoyed the flavor and so did my kiddos. Fits in perfectly with my WW way of life. I will be making this a more regular dinner meal in my house!
This is sooooo good! I was expecting it to be really sweet but it's not. It has a nice tangy sweet taste to it. The ingredients really complement each other. I did brown my chicken first in a little cooking spray to give it some color but that ended up not needing to be done. The end result is a tender piece of chicken that melts in your mouth.
