Apricot Glazed Chicken


A quick and easy chicken dish. Note: you can substitute orange juice or marmalade for the apricot jam to make orange glazed chicken! Serve with rice if desired.

4 to 6 servings


  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can low-sodium chicken broth

  • ¾ cup apricot preserves

  • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 1 tablespoon water


  1. Spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Brown chicken in heated skillet.

  2. Add chicken broth, jam and soy sauce. Simmer for 20 minutes or until chicken is done (no longer pink in the center).

  3. Remove chicken from skillet. Add 1 tablespoon cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water to sauce to thicken (equal amounts more of each if you like it thicker). Return chicken to skillet and turn to coat thoroughly with sauce.
