EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Check your pantry! Peach or orange preserves can be substituted for the apricot preserves for an equally delicious dish.

You can use a meat mallet, rolling pin or even a wine bottle to flatten chicken breast halves. Just pound each breast down to 1/2-inch thickness. This helps the meat cook quickly and evenly.

Serve this citrus-kissed chicken with basmati rice. Basmati rice has a wonderful perfumy, nutlike flavor and aroma. It can be found in Indian and Middle Eastern markets and in many supermarkets.
