Great recipe... and especially because the kids like it. I didn't have apricot jam, so I went in search of a substitute that was similar to Apricot Chicken. I had cranberry sauce (without whole cranberries) and decided to go for it. The result was great. I serve this with rice (I use half brown, half white) and vegetables... a simple, delicious meal. Thanks!

Great tasting and moist. Will certainly make again. I did 3 chicken thighs and one very large breast and halved the rest of the ingredients. There may have been a wee bit too much sauce but it was flavourful.
