Chicken with Apricots and Orzo

Ooops - I did it again.... as in buying one of those Better Home and Gardens Special Interest Publications - this one is called 30 Minute Dinners - just perfect for quick and delicious meals. I love these magazines and really like that almost every recipe shows a picture of the finished dish..  It's nice seeing the end result before making it, just to see how close I get!

I'll be preparing more recipes in the coming weeks - saw some good ones to try.
