      We thought this was very tasty, though I preferred it before I added the saffron (not my favorite spice) I did cut back on the apricots a little since it seemed like a lot compared to the amount of chicken. If making this again I would use chicken thighs instead of breasts, I think the darker flavor would marry well with the flavors of the sauce. I served this with Jasmine Rice With Caramelized Green Onions and they really complimented each other. Made for ZWT 9 by one of Mike and the Appliance Killers

      This was ok. The only thing I changed was using a cornstarch as Annacia did.

      This was so very good! I used a VERY light "butter" and red capsicum (yellow are very expensive and slow sellers here). I made all the sauce for the two of us but will use the rest on a pheasant I have in the freezer. The spinach was delicious as it wilted under the chicken breast. Thank you so much for posting!
