Chicken with Apricot-Lemon Glaze

Chicken with Apricot-Lemon Glaze

Today was the first day I set foot inside Target in 6 days!  That has to be a record as I'm normally there about 3-4 times a week!  It is also the first time I've cooked in 6 days...that might be a record too.  Earlier today I quickly did a search for a dinner with less than 5 (major) ingredients and this recipe popped up.  It was super fast and super delicious. I'm starting a new category called "company worthy" because this definitely was. 

The ingredients

Prepare the chicken

Rub with curry powder, salt and fresh pepper

Zest and juice a lemon

Cook chicken

Make the glaze out of the apricot spread, water and lemon juice and spoon over chicken and top with zest

A 5 star dinner!
