boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
salt and pepper to taste
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!
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.
This tasted nice & was easy to make but the sauce was a little too rich for our liking.
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) :)
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!
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.
I must admit that I was worried about the sour cream w/ preserves, but it really have a great flavor when it was done. I will make this again.
