 Apricot Ginger Chicken Breasts

Photo by:

With just a few ingredients you can create a special chicken dinner. Serve this with rice and a stir-fried vegetable.

Yield: Serves 4

INGREDIENTS
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ½ cup apricot preserves
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions

Directions

Trim chicken and pound to an even ½-inch thickness between two sheets of plastic wrap. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook 2 minutes per side.

Stir together the apricot preserves, soy sauce and ginger. Pour over the chicken and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat and cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until chicken is cooked through, turning over once to coat with sauce. Drizzle with sesame oil. Serve sprinkled with green onions.
