Okay, I know. It's Mother's Day and what am I doing cooking, right? Well, my husband got the plague, and our usual festivities had to be altered a bit. So I decided to start my recipe blogging tonight instead. I was one of the lucky ones chosen to blog about my experiences with the Six O' Clock Scramble. So far so good. Here is my take on tonight's recipe.

I decided to start with a recipe called Baked Apricot Chicken. It looked alot like something my mom used to make us when were were kids, but her recipe had cranberries instead of apricots and alot more grease. She used a can of cranberry sauce and an entire bottle of french dressing. It's very very yummy, but will go directly to your hips. This recipe is one of their low-fat recipes, but you can't tell it from the taste. It was a hit!

The recipe basically calls for dried apricots, apricot preserves, garlic, reduced sodium soy sauce, lemon juice and Dijon mustard. You put the chicken in a pan, cover it with yummyness and cook for 25 minutes. And in my case 25 minutes and then an additional 10, because I have an electric oven that is infamous for being a pain in the arse and making recipes difficult to follow. I served the chicken with the recommended brown rice and broccoli. If you have someone in the house that doesn't like brown rice, the sauce is very sweet and yummy and covers the brown rice very nicely. They won't be able to taste the difference. My husband is a very picky eater and will always try everything, but that doesn't mean he'll eat it. After about four bites, he said "I'd totally have this again." Ding ding ding!

I would make one recommendation change to the recipe. Next time I prepare it, I would use chicken tenders instead of chicken breasts. I think it would cook up quicker and get more the gooey stickey yummyness over the chicken.

Above is a picture of my son smiling because he liked the chicken and broccoli. The rice was messy, but with a toddler that is to be expected. Notice the gooey rice on his shirt. He was saving that for later.
