Recipe Notes

Tips For Making Honey Apricot Chicken

  • Cooking for Two? This is a perfect meal to scale down for smaller quantities. Just cook one or two chicken breasts on your tray and cut the rest of the ingredients in half as well!

  • Want to Prep Ahead? Make the apricot sauce in advance and keep it in the refrigerator for up to one week. You can also trim and wash the asparagus ahead of time so that when you're ready to make dinner, there's absolutely NO prep work necessary -- just place on the tray and bake!

  • If you're not a fan of parsley, basil is another herb that will go really well with this apricot chicken.
