My review is for variations I made to this recipe based on ingredients I had on hand. Forgive me for tainting the review pool, but this is for cooks who make substitutions. I used thick chicken breasts (mistake) instead of thighs because I had them on hand. They turned out too dry. Maybe marinating them for a long time would have helped, or cutting them into strips like tenderloins. Also, I didn't have French dressing.. so I used what I had: a quarter cup of Italian and the rest of a raspberry vinaigrette. I didn't have apricot preserves so I used a jar of Orange Marmalade. The sauce smelled divine and tasted really good with my subsitutions, if only the chicken breasts didn't dry out. Don't do what I did unless you marinate for awhile or chop your chicken breasts into smaller pieces. In fairness to the original chef, I will make the recipe again as written and change my review at that time. I am hopeful it will be better.
