I made this recipe with boneless skinless chicken leg meat and one other substitution.. I didn't use bread crumbs but used finely crushed corn flakes. That made the recipe nearly gluten free. The family loved it!

This was ok. I subbed peach preserves for apricot. I used thights and legs. I also brined the chicken in water, salt and some cider vinegar. I baked on a baking pan with air space around each piece of meat. It took 40 minutes longer than the time the recipe required. If I do it again, I will add more lemon and either turn the heat up a bit or turn the broiler on for the last 15 minutes. The butter was not needed at all and actually detracted from the other flavors.

I liked this I used panko for the breadcrumbs. I removed the skin on the breast I burnt the extra sauce but that was okay as the chicken was very moist. Thanks for posting. Made for World tour 8
