Apricot Chicken Breasts

Looking for a new chicken dish? Apricots pair well with and really enhance the flavor of chicken. This is wonderful served with brown rice and your choice of vegetables. If you are looking for a recipe that has no added salt, and is low in calories and fat, this one fits the bill.


You can also cook the chicken breasts on a counter top grill, reduce cooking time as the heat comes from both the top and bottom. I love my grill and use it to cook as many things as possible. If you are barbecue lover you can cook these over low heat.
