This is great on pork tenderloin or ribs. If you wish, the chicken can be partially cooked in the microwave. Serve with a green salad or baked potato, if desired. This is also good at room temperature, but you will ned lots of napkins! Sweet and savory, but not too spicy for kids.

I have used this recipe for years. One of my favorite ways is to use orange marmalade instead of apricot preserves. I add green and red peppers cut in strips and a can of chunk pineapple. Pour over chicken or pork in bake. I serve this over seasoned white rice.

Very moist and mildly sweet chicken. I will make it again. I marinated it over night in the sauce and made extra sauce to pour over the chicken. I used a russian dressing from this site, which was excellent. I'd suggest adding garlic and onions. Must try chicken.

Different and Delicious! I made this with boneless, skinless chicken breasts and served over white rice. Thanks for the post :)
