    3. 3. Add apricot spread, lemon juice, and 2 tablespoons water to pan, stirring until smooth. Cook over medium heat 1 minute. Spoon sauce over chicken; sprinkle with lemon rind.the image from here
    Variations:
    I use chicken thighs in lieu of the Breasts because there is much more flavor and they are cheaper in general.

    This is one of my favorites from the cookbook as well I dont use salt and this had alot of flavor.  It only has 402 mg of sodium if you choose to keep it in the recipe. :) Even my pickest eaters loved it so it has earned it's spot on the permanent menu!

    My cookbook addiction

    Hello my name is Cheryl and I'm addicted to really ,practical cookbooks! Yes I just posted on another Weight Watchers cookbook. I have no interest in the point system none whatsoever.

I wish I had started with this and the One pot cookbook back in 2012 when I had the health scare this would have made eating healthy a whole lot simpler. I will be looking over both so I…
