Almond Chicken with Apricot Sauce

{Pin This}

This is a new recipe I tried this week from the upcoming Taste of Home Best Loved Recipes Book. I had some apricot sauce from my apricot tree, chicken from zaycon and some almonds from Vitacost that I wanted to use so this recipe was perfect. We really liked how it turned out. It was a very good way to prepare chicken.


  • 1 Cup of Apricot Spreadable Fruit
  • 3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce (Soy Sauce Coupons)
  • 2 Tablespoons finely chopped onion (I used minced dry)
  • 4 Teaspoons Cider Vinegar (Vinegar Coupon)
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Mustard
  • 4-6 Breast of Chicken
  • 1/2 Cup Sliced Almonds (Free from Vitacost)
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter (melted)

To Prepare:

In a shallow bowl mix apricot, soy sauce, onion, cider vinegar and ground mustard. Set aside 1/2 cup. For best results tenderize yout chicken with a meat mallet. Dip chicken breasts in sauce. Place in 13 x 9 baking dish coated with cooking spray.

Sprinkle the almonds over the chicken and drizzle with melted butter. Bake uncovered , at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until the thermometer reads 170°. Serve with reserved apricot sauce.
