    ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL CHICKEN! I used 4 chicken breasts & was really liked with the results! So easy to make, too! Will happily make this one again & again! Many thanks for posting the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed as a PRESSIE in the Aus/NZ 12 Days of Christmas Recipe Swap]

    This was a nice easy recipe to make - I would make it again! I used bone in chicken pieces and added some potatoes to the pan while baking. Thanks for the recipe!

    Loved it. Have to confess I rarely prepare meals using soup mixes (canned or dried) but tonight was one of those enenings when we were too tired to cook but hungry enough to want a real meal. This was the perfect compromise dish. I could not find canned apricots and used peaches instead. Made a mistake in covering the casserole dish so there was not much evaporation - don't do that as you lose the wonderful gravy this creates.I instead had to scoop a bit of the sauce out and quickly reduce and thicken it with a bit of arrowroot. The sweet savory combination was so goodand the wine added a bit of sophistication and complexity. Served with brown rice baked at the same time and some quick steamed green beans. Delicious. Thanks kiwidutch.
