4 servings (serving size: 1 chicken breast half and 1 tablespoon sauce)

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.



How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 3 ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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.

It was good but the chicken was a little bland. I would have like it to soak up the sauce more.

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.

Very simple to make quickly on a weeknight. Tasty, but nothing extra special.

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.

Easy and tasty. Next time we will marinate the chicken in the sauce a bit before hand. Love the sauce with the rice.

Extremely easy, I used chicken tenders instead of breasts, otherwise followed recipe exactly and the taste was quite delicious. My husband said this definitely must go into the rotation

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

Thia is a pretty good recipe. It was quick and tasty. I didn't have apricot, so I used peach preserves, it did not appear to make a difference. Next time I might double the glaze recipe since I more chicken the recipe called.

Kinda blah for what I was expecting. Probably won't make this again.
