      Made this without the red pepper. Seasoned the chicken breasts with garlic salt and black pepper before cooking. This was really yummy! No leftovers available!

      I have been making this dish for several years now, and I LOVE it. My husband loves it, too. He requests it from time to time. I always make extra sauce b/c it's so good and then I either serve it with broccoli and rice or garlic mashed potates. I would love to try the chicken salad with leftovers, but I NEVER have enough leftovers for chicken salad no matter how much extra I make! Thanks Gingernut for such a wonderful recipe! This is in my book of favorites!

      Great recipe Gingernut. Very easy and I found it tasty and so did the family, I did put a tiny bit of grated ginger in also, and added some cashews to it!! DH loves his cashews in this type of dish. We liked it here and I will be buying more apricot preserves (jam) on my next shopping trip, so I can make this again!!! I didn't have any left for a salad either :-( Whats left has double dib's on it by DS, for his lunch at work tomorrow... and let me tell ya Gingernut, if he dibs something to take to work, it must be good!!!
