Make a super-quick glaze for chicken breasts using on-hand pantry items: hoisin sauce, fruit spread and chicken broth. Steam quick-cooking rice and a green veggie in the microwave to round out the meal.
1/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon apricot preserves or fruit spread
4 (4-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
How to Make It
Combine first 3 ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.
Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, and sauté for 3 minutes on each side. Remove chicken from pan. Reduce heat; carefully stir in broth mixture. Return chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes or until done, turning to coat.

Very easy and quick recipe. I don't know how anyone could say it was blah if they used the right ingredients. We thought it was a little too spicy, next time skip the pepper. Overall very tasty and we will have it again. The sauce itself would be a great stir fry sauce.
I served this along with the apricot-glazed roasted asparagus, and the two apricot dishes went very nicely together. I agree with others that the sauce is a little runny, and doesn't do a whole lot for the chicken. The recipe was very easy though and didn't require any ingredients that I didn't already have.
Overall, it was good, but nothing fantastic.
This is an excellent recipe for the work involved. It is very tasty and VERY easy. An excellent go-to midweek recipe. With the right side dishes, it could be served to company. Again, for the work involved, it's an excellent recipe
