  • Bake uncovered for 25 to 30 minutes, or until no longer pink in the center, and juices run clear.

  • While the chicken is cooking, stir together the apricot preserves, sour cream, mustard, salt and pepper in a small bowl. When the chicken is done, remove from the oven, and coat with the sauce. Return to the oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until sauce is bubbly and hot.

It was good! My kids liked it. I made this super quickly by browning cubed raw chicken in a skillet and then pouring the sauce over it and simmering for 10 minutes. Thank you! Read More

Sorry this didn't work out for us. I wish there were some way to get the flavor of the sauce to penetrate into the chicken but as written it's just a yummy sauce over dry tasteless chicken. Yes the sauce is rich and it's not a taste I'd like all the time but if the flavor was in the chicken without all the heaviness smothered on top and the chicken was moist it'd be a a recipe I'd make again.

I loved this recipe - easy and tasty but I think the portion sizes are a bit optimistic. I'd say this was for 6/4 people depending on how hungry they are. Read More

This dish was GREAT!! I used boneless skinless chicken thighs and doubled the sauce. I thought it would be really sweet but it was just right! (and the sauce is good over rice too):) Read More

Even using no sugar apricot preserve and fat free sour cream this was a bit too sweet for our liking. It was very easy to make but I doubt it will make the regular rotation. Read More

When i told my family what was in the sauce they weren't to sure what to think. After they tasted it they were hooked. This is a great quick recipe for a meal the whole family can enjoy. Not to sweet; not to bland...just right! Read More

I do serve this with rice Pilaf whenever I cook it. Now the portion sizes are based on the regular food guide to what we should be eating but of course I always double the recipe because we love this so much that we eat bigger portions than the norm. I don't always like to have left overs as I do not like how it tastes microwaved but my husband thinks it's great as leftovers. Read More
