Apricot Glazed Chicken

Apricot Glazed Chicken

It’s hard to pick a favorite recipe in a category, but because I make Apricot Glazed Chicken  more often than any other chicken dish & I actually get cravings for it, I’ll have to say Apricot Glazed Chicken is my favorite. I almost always pair this chicken with Jasmine Rice (see recipe in Rice & Grains category) & a vegetable or a side salad. There’s something about the combination of the tangy chicken along with the nutty flavor of the Jasmine Rice that always gets my mouth watering!

4 Arrange the chicken breasts, not touching, on the broiler rack.

5 Using only 1/2 the glaze; one breast at a time, with a spoon spread a thin layer of glaze all over the chicken & lightly sprinkle immediately with hot paprika. Repeat till all the breasts are done. The hot paprika is for flavor, but also keeps the glaze from slipping off the chicken. Refrigerate the rest of the glaze till ready to use in step# 8.

6 Bake the chicken for 50 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the breasts (internal temperature should be 155°).

7 Remove from oven & let sit 15 minutes.

8 Spread the remaining glaze onto the breasts (no paprika).

9 Return to middle oven rack & broil 3 to 5 minutes till the glaze starts to blacken slightly (internal temperature should be 165°). Let cool 15 minutes & serve.

Apricot Glazed Chicken

1 Tamarind chutney can be hard to find, except maybe in an Asian specialty store. I order mine online from Nuts.com, a great company with a terrific selection & great prices by the way. Hot mango chutney can be found in most grocery stores in the international section.

2 If freezing; let the breasts cool to room temperature. Place each breast into an individual airtight container & freeze up to 30 days. Don’t wrap them in foil or plastic, as the wrap will stick to the glaze & cause it to come off the breasts once defrosted.
