This sweet and tangy glaze added to chicken breasts is a crowd-pleaser for all ages. The glaze can be made ahead for super-easy dinner prep.

Ingredients

uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)

10 oz

cooking spray

2 spray(s)

unsalted butter

2 tsp

apricot jam

¼ cup(s), all-fruit variety

balsamic vinegar

1 Tbsp

rosemary

½ tsp, fresh, chopped

crushed red pepper flakes

tsp

kosher salt

1 tsp

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Place breasts on lightly sprayed, foil lined baking sheet and bake in oven.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add jam, vinegar, rosemary, red pepper flakes and salt; stir to combine. Simmer for 3 to 5 minutes for flavors to meld. Set aside and keep warm.
  4. Bake frozen breasts, about 25 minutes, until internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  5. Remove cooked breasts from oven and brush both sides with glaze. Return glazed breasts to baking sheet and place under the broiler for 1-2 minutes to caramelize.
  6. Serve chicken breasts with additional glaze on the side or spooned on top. Yields 1 chicken breast per serving.
