Slightly Savory Saturday


Everyone needs a little change of pace from the ordinary and I am no exception. We eat a lot of chicken breasts in this house and sometimes it gets a little ho hum and boring. Today I offer you an easy recipe for Apricot Chicken which is a nice change from just a basic grilled option. Enjoy!

Apricot Lemon Chicken

1. Flatten 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves  to about 1/2 inch thickness.

2. Combine 1 tsp curry powder, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp ground pepper and sprinkle over chicken.

3. In large skillet cook chicken in 2 tsp canola oil over medium heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until thermometer reads 170 degrees.  Remove to serving plate.

4. Add 1/3 cup spreadable apricot fruit and 2 TBSP. each water and lemon juice to pan, cook and stir until syrupy, about 2 minutes.

5. Serve over chicken, sprinkle with grated lemon peel.

  3. sounds yummy!

  4. Looks familiar- and delicious !

  5. Yum. This sounds good. We eat quite a bit of grilled chicken also.

    Is that a Fiesta ware plate?

  6. I’m always looking for something different when it comes to chicken breast – we eat a lot of it too and there are only so many different ways you can cook it. This is a nice change of pace! 🙂

  7. looks very good! I wonder if this would work with marmalade too? very a nice bit of orange chicken. a little bit of coconut oil in the pan……I’m in cooking heaven suddenly.

    • Yes–it would definitely work with marmalade. Chris and I were just having a marmalade conversation this morning—how odd is that??? Ooo–coconut added would be lovely. A new dish!

  8. Wow a chicken recipe with no garlic or onion!! That’s great. I’m allergic to both!

  9. Looks delicious and plan to try this soon. Yummy…

  10. Apricot–wouldn’t have thought of that. Sounds yummy.

  11. I’m adding this to my list to make this week when we get home. Curry and apricot sounds like a nice savory-sweet combination. And healthy, too.

  12. Wow, does that ever sound good!!!!!

    It’s been a crazy week here. Taught a 5 day long workshop of furniture painting. Just wanted to stop by and say hi! Happy Easter, my friend.

    Hugs from Ecuador,
