Country Apricot Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Irmgard

An easy, tasty recipe that can be served during the week by preparing everything the night before and refrigerating until you get home. Then just pop it in the oven for an hour and voila! Dinner is ready. It is a little on the spicy side as it calls for 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper; I myself only use half.

Excellent, loved by all. Easy to make! I used chicken tenders and just poured sauce over. I had left over pilaf and cooked broccali, ummm good.
