  • 4 small boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup apricot jam
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onions
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup orange juice


  • Season the chicken evenly with sea salt and pepper
  • In a small bowl, mix the apricot jam, mustard, garlic powder and minced onions together, and set aside 
  • Add the olive oil to a large skillet, and cook chicken for 2 to 3 minutes per side on medium high heat
  • Remove chicken from skillet, place on a plate, and cover with foil
  • Add the orange juice to the pan, and stir well to deglaze and remove any brown bits
  • Stir in the apricot jam mixture, and heat until bubbling
  • Add the chicken back to the pan, reduce heat to medium, and simmer until chicken reaches internal temperature of 160 degrees, according to meat thermometer. Spoon glaze over chicken while cooking and when serving


If glaze gets too thick, thin it with a little more orange juice
