  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
  • Preparation

    1. 1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a small bowl; rub mixture over chicken.
    2. 2. Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Cook chicken 6 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken from pan, and keep warm.
    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!

    About This blog

    My fondest memoreis in my life are the ones at my grandmother's table.I loved not only the warm,velvety ,slightly sweet 7-up cake, but the affirmation that I was loved. What started out as a creative outlet and a place to honor her loving,generous spirit has evolved into a food blog where I can blather on about recipes, food trends, and basically any food related topic that foodies would like, ....you get the idea. I am sure my family and anyone I've been friendly with for more than 2 minutes will breathe a collective sigh of relief, since I don't have to dump my food conversations on them all the time. Also to mix things up I will share scrapbook pages. I want the blog to refect who I am and what I like to do when apart from being a full time Mama and part time college student.Thank you for sharing this journey of exploration with me.
