Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon chili garlic sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (5 oz each)

    Sprinkle salt evenly over both sides of chicken breasts. Place on broiler pan top-side down. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat 8 minutes; turn chicken. Broil 4 to 6 minutes longer or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (165°F). Remove from oven. Divide remaining apricot mixture evenly over tops of chicken breasts (about 1 tablespoon per chicken breast), spreading to cover. Return to oven; broil 1 to 3 minutes longer or until sauce bubbles.

    Meanwhile, microwave reserved apricot mixture uncovered on High 30 to 45 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds, until heated through. Serve warm sauce with chicken.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    A serving of sugar snap peas or fresh green beans would complement this chicken dish nicely.
  • tip 2
    Look for nonstick foil at your grocery store next to the regular foil. If you can't find it, simply spray regular foil with cooking spray.
  • tip 3
    Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
