Spicy Apricot Chicken - CopySpicy Apricot Chicken is a great comfort food.  Just add a side dish for a quick and easy meal anytime.  My family loves this spicy apricot chicken and I make it often.

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thawed or frozen
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon coarse ground pepper (can use regular ground pepper)
1 cup Apricot preserves
1/2 cup honey
1 package dry onion soup mix
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Rub salt and pepper into chicken breasts and place into a casserole dish.  Mix together remaining ingredients in a bowl and pour over chicken.  Cover with lid or Reynolds wrap and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 1 hour.  Serve over rice.  Enjoy!
Note:  This could also be made in the crockpot or slow cooker.  Just cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours.

  1. I love this recipe I am a truck driver so this worked great in the crockpot! !

  2. OMGosh, this chicken is good!! The wonderful smells coming from the oven as it cooked had my boyfriend drooling.. He practically scarfed it down as soon as I took it out of the oven! Big big hit 😉

    I used apricot ‘Simply Fruit’ as that’s what I had on hand, and I left out the added salt since the soup mix is so salty & we’re trying to cut back. I also only used half the honey called for.. And it was still absolutely DEVINE served over rice, as suggested. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you so much for sharing it!!
    The boyfriend has already asked when I’ll make it again, lol! 🙂

  3. This on my menu to make this week!!!
