    KateL's Note:

    Delicious chicken variation, not too fancy. I made this for my elderly mother-in-law from The America's Test Kitchen Family Cookbook of 2006, and it cries out to be featured in my First Day of Spring celebration.

      This was delicious! We used a sugar-free honey substitute, and it worked out great. Very easy yet flavorful dish. And that was even fogetting the almonds! Thanks for the recipe! ~Sue

      This was a great dinner for us. The sauce would've been enough for 1 more serving, and it was so good I couldn't bear to throw it away. So I saved it in the fridge - in the next day or so I'll heat it up on top of some rice as part of a leftover lunch. :) I only used 3 T honey, and my apricot jam was also short by about 1 T, but otherwise I made exactly as directed. The hot sauce added just the right amount of spice to contrast with the sweetness.

      Made this recipe pretty much as directed ~ Used a mild honey & slivered almonds along with everything else & the results were ABSOLUTELY GREAT! Served this with a simple mix of peas & brown rice! Another time I'll slice the chicken into strips or bite-size pieces so that each person can take as much or as little as they like! A definite keeper! Thanks for posting! [Tagged, made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hit Wonders cooking game]
