Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Way too sweet-I would seriously cut back on the preserves.
I would encourage anyone on a low sodium diet to calculate the sodium for yourselves-I don't think 200mg sounds right, especially when the recipe calls for added salt beyond what's in the broth.

This is hands down the best low sodium meal I've made so far.

I followed the recipe exactly and then used a slotted spoon to lift out the onion and chopped apricots. Served it with 60sixty recipe for Garlic Spiked Broccoli with Cranberries also a SP low sodium recipe. Husband best meal ever.

This sounds absolutely delicious, but is a tad high in calories for one-half of a chicken breast. I'm going to have to try it some time for a special occasion just because it sounds so good. Submitted by:

We love this recipe so much that I actually do it in the crock pot. I doubled the chicken, used sugar-free preserves and keept everything else the same. Served with a salad and brown rice, it is wonderful. Plus, you get awesome leftovers! Submitted by:

This is such a great recipe. This is the second fruit with meat entree I have found on this site. I have been so missing salt and herbs are not my thing, I am learning to use them more. Eating fruit is really exciting. Pineapples with pork , Apricots and chicken. DH and I love these combos. Submitted by:

I think this is a lot of calories. See the 8 servings for 344 calories in four chicken breasts. Most would eat one chicken breast, which would be 700 calories (without rice or anything else). Submitted by:

I am definitely trying this one out this weekend. Olive Garden serves an Apricot Chicken dish and my best friend raves about it but I just know it has more calories & fat than this version. Can't wait to try it out. Submitted by:

Isn't this Rachel Ray's Recipe?! If you use low-sodium broth or even homemade, it cuts the sodium even more. Great with brown rice! Submitted by:
