  • “Definitely ‘fantastic’ and ‘yummy’, I used one large chicken breast for 2 servings, cut down on the cornflour, and only had the apricots and not the nectar. Just added a little water instead, and was still a 5* recipe. Also had it with rice instead of pasta. Thanks for posting=)”

  • “Quite a tasty dish and easy to make! I was worried at first that the apricot flavor would be overpowering, but it was good to the last bite :)”

  • “This dish was wonderful.I made it with about 1 lb of chicken breast.The cans of apricots and nectar available were a little smaller, which was fine.I only needed about 1/2 C cornflour.Instead of pasta, I served it with brown rice.The dish went very well with the nuttiness of the rice.Thanks for posting this.It will become one of my staples!”

  • “I used the rice and pasta and had a bit of both with it. They were just about the same on the nice scale. One of my favourite recipes.”

  • “So simple to make and extremely yummy for a family dinner. Will definatley make this again.”

  • “I made this with chicken drumsticks and cooked it a little longer without stirring it.Otherwise I didn’t change anything..We really enjoyed this and quite enough left to freeze which was eaten a few days ago and husband said…. mmmm,, We will have that one again… I served it with homemade fried rice.I already have chicken waiting to be cooked this way again..A winner”

  • “This was fantastic!Served it with pasta and a green salad and the whole family loved it!”

  • “This recipe is so easy and really rather quick. Very good served over brown rice. Will be making this one again. “

  • “This was so good! Quick and easy and inexpensive too.I used apricot halves that were packed in water. I will make this again and again. I served over rice.”

  • “I was expecting this to be great and it was just OK. I found it a bit too sweet (not enough balance between sweet and main dish) and it tasted like it was missing something. I did add fresh basil to this dish and it did add some balance to the flavor but still was too sweet. I probably won’t make this again.”

  • “So easy to make and absolutely delicious. I did not change a thing, served mine with shell pasta and it was truly fantastic. I like the fruity flavor and the color of the sauce. Thank you for sharing your recipe.”

  • “Very easy and quick to make. I served it with couscous and everyone liked it, even my 2 yr old.”

  • “The best apricot recipe I have tried because it is so simple.”
