This is a nice and simple recipe for a quick weekneight dinner. I used a little more balsamic vineger than the recipe called for though. It helped to balance out the sweetness. This is a great recipe, thanks!
This was not a winner in my household. My husband thought it was too sweet - even after I added the dijon as suggested. I don't think we'll make it again.
We thought this was very good and will do it again in the future. Next time I make it I'm going to add some fresh chopped garlic to the mix shortly after the onions start cooking to give it another layer of flavor. I will also use boneless, skinless thigh fillets instead of breast meat because we just like them better. I made a half recipe for two people and it was really good.
I didn't have dried apricots but I did have 3 fresh peaches on hand. I also used fresh sage. It's a keeper! Balsamic and fruit are a great combo.
We love this! I made it for supper this evening with rice and steamed broccoli. My husband had seconds. As one reviewer mentioned, it's a wonderful blend of sweet and savory. While it simmers, you can prep quick side dishes so everything is ready at the same time. Great weeknight entree. This is definitely a keeper for us. Thanks for sharing!
4.5 stars actually. This recipe was quick to prepare and turned out well. Instead of apricot preserves, I used apricot "simply fruit" which may have been a little less sweet...it had the right amount of sweetness in the end. I also used canned apricots instead of dried which were juicier and may have made a little more sauce than originally intended. I added just a little cornstarch to thicken the sauce and served it with orzo pilaf and broccoli. Make sure to serve this with rice or pasta to go along with all of the sauce.
ehhhh it was ok...made exactly as written as I always do when trying something new...IF I were to make this again for sure cut back on the preserves!
Enjoyed this recipe - served over couscous. I wanted a thicker sauce so I added a little corn starch slurry to it in the end and it thickened right up. It felt a little heavy on the thyme flavor, but I suspect that is because I used dried instead of fresh thyme (reduced to 1 tsp.). Next time I will probably cut back on the thyme a little more if using dried. Overall, unique, easy recipe with an interesting mix of flavors.
