  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves
  • 2 tbsps low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes (add more if you prefer spicy)
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (bring chicken close to room temp)
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsps butter
  • fresh chopped cilantro or parsley for garnish


  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together chicken broth, apricot preserves, soy sauce, minced garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes. Set aside.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper; add chicken to the skillet. Cook for 5 minutes on each side until chicken breasts are cooked through and the internal temperature has reached 165 degrees F.
  • Pour apricot sauce over chicken and simmer for 2-3 minutes until warmed through, occasionally spooning sauce over the tops of the chicken breasts. Finish sauce with butter. Garnish with fresh chopped cilantro and serve immediately over rice.
