Glazed Lime Apricot Chicken Breasts. This delicious sweet, tangy and slightly spicy glaze can be used on grilled, baked or pan seared chicken; your choice!
Today’s recipe is another quick workday supper recipe that is popular with the whole family. You can use this sweet and sour glaze on pan fried or baked chicken breasts.
If baking the chicken breasts, I like to leave the skin on and brush the glaze on in several coats. If pan frying the chicken, then I just simmer the cooked breasts in the glaze for a minute, slice and serve with additional glaze.
I also like to brush it on grilled chicken as it cooks on the BBQ. The chili paste is optional or you can adjust it to your taste; the recipe is good with or without it.
