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 nutlike flavor and fragrant aroma. It can be found in Indian and Middle Eastern markets and in many supermarkets.
Check your pantry! Peach or orange preserves can be substituted for the apricot preserves for an equally delicious dish.
