Sweet and Spicy Glazed Chicken
Original recipe is from Pampered Chef. This is our altered version.
- ½ cup Apricots jarred
- 1 tbsp Lime Juice
- 1 Jalepeno Pepper seeded and finely chopped
- 2 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts halved
- 1 tbsp Garlic minced
- 1 tsp Chili Powder
- ½ tsp Salt
- 1 tbsp Dried Cilantro
Slice and chop apricots, add to a microwaveable bowl and heat on HIGH 30-40 seconds until soft. Add chopped jalapeno and lime juice. Keep lime slice for later.
Halve chicken breasts and flatten using a meat tenderizer.
Mix chili powder and salt, set aside. Rub garlic over chicken. Sprinkle evenly with seasonings.
Lightly spray a skillet with olive oil and heat over medium-high until hot. Add chicken and lime (squeeze out any juice that may be left) and cook 7 minutes, turn and cook another 5-7 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
Add apricot mixture, sprinkle with cilantro, and cook another 5 minutes. Serve with any side of your choice. We chose rice and peas.
