1 cup apricot nectar
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
2 tablespoons catsup
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon horseradish mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 boneless chicken breasts
1 can apricot half (drained)


Preheat broiler. Combine apricot nectar, brown sugar, orange peel, catsup, cornstarch, horseradish mustard, and salt in saucepan. Stir until cornstarch is fully dissolved. Bring to a boil and hold for 1 minute. Remove from heat.

Broil chicken breasts 4–5 minutes on each side. Brush often with apricot sauce during broiling and before serving. Garnish with apricot halves.

Editor's Extra: A little on the “y” side of easy, but once you taste it, you’ll know “y” we included it.

Fun Fact: A recent study at the University of Massachusetts found that recipes using canned ingredients are comparable in nutritional value and taste appeal to those made with fresh or frozen items. The findings send a strong message to people looking for convenient ways to eat healthy.
