Recipe Comments & Reviews

Quick and easy – and my family really likes it too! I have substituted apricot preserves for the spreadable fruit and honey with success…
Made this easy recipe for a crowd and they all loved it. The chicken was moist and flavorful. Perfect with potato salad.
I made the quick version on the stove and it turned out great.. Thank you
you can have taste of summer anytime
