Apricot Chicken

This is a great easy recipe to use when you're not sure what to do with that chicken.  It takes nearly no time at all and is delicious!  It's sticky and sweet and salty all at the same time.  Yum!  Thanks to my friend Audrey for the recipe.

Apricot Chicken

2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast
1 cup apricot jam or preserves
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 t garlic, minced

Combine the jam, soy sauce, and garlic.  Add chicken and toss to coat.  If desired, leave to marinate for 10-30 minutes, or cook immediately. 

To cook in the oven:
Bake chicken in a casserole dish for 35 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165F. 

To cook on the grill/broiler:
Grill over high heat for 3 minutes per side, then an additional 3 minutes per side on medium-low heat, or until the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165F.

Makes 4 servings.

Um, so did you bake the chicken in the marinade, or take it out and lay it in a different dish? And did you coat that casserole dish with cooking spray? Sorry -just hoping to make it tonight!!! mmmmm!

Take it out of the marinade and throw the rest of the marinade away. You should grease the dish before baking. Hope it works out well!
Let me know how it goes!
