The beauty of April’s Apricot Chicken is that you can serve it all year round, not just in the month of April (April, the person, finds that joke mildly funny). And April’s recipe shows us why. Each of the tender, savory chicken breasts are coated in a jammy, tangy and creamy sauce, with notes of sweetness and sourness for a lovely balance! It’s also so easy to throw together, just put the chicken breasts in the sauce and bake! Straightforward and scrumptious, April’s Apricot Chicken is the dish that delivers, no matter the season or month!
