    From: Martha Stewart's Living Oct 2004

    Prep time: 5 mins. Total time: 50 mins.

    Serves: 4

    8 Chicken thighs (I will use breasts)
    Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    1 jar (12 oz) apricot jam
    2 TBSP honey
    2 TBSP Dijon mustard

    Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Risnse chicken; pat dry, and transfer to a baking dish. Season well with alt and pepper; set aside.

    Bring jum, honey, and mustartd to a boil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer until thickened and reduced by half, about 15 mins. Spoon apricot mixture over chicken, spreading with back of spoon to coat evenly.

    Bake chicken, basting with sauce from bottom of dish every 10 mins, until juices run clear when chicken is pricked with a fork, about 30 mins.

    This is a very simple dish with good taste. I would definately make this again due to easy. The sauce is a bit thick.

    Suggestions: Experiment with thinning the sauce, just a tad , with low sodium chicken broth as it is reducing.

    I'm going to experiment with making my own apricot glaze with other spice etc. added, if I figure it out and if it is worthy, I'll post it.

    Rating: 4.5/5 Quick and tasty.
