Apricot Chicken Bake
Serving Size : 6
6 chicken breast halves
1 cup apricot nectar
1/2 tsp. ground allspice
1/8 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
1/3 cup apricot preserves
3 tbsp. pecans toasted
Have the chicken breasts skinned and boned. Place the chicken in an oven-proof
pan large enough that the chicken will not be overlapping.
Combine the next 5 ingredients and pour over the chicken, turning the chicken to
get the marinade over all parts. Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight or at
least 8 hours.
Remove from refrigerator and let stand for 30 minutes.
Cover tightly with foil and bake in preheated 350º F. oven for 30 minutes.
Uncover, drain and discard liquid from chicken, and keep warm.
Heat apricot preserves and brush over chicken. Bake, uncovered, 20 - 30 minutes
longer, basting with preserves another 2 times.
Remove to serving platter and sprinkle with toasted pecans.
Serving Ideas : Serve over rice.
NOTES : Requires eight hours or more to marinate
