    FABULOUS! The best recipe I've tried from SP so far, hands down! My family loved it and said it I could make every week. I didn't have dried apricots on hand so made it with just the apricot preserves and it was fine. I served it with a tossed salad and brown rice. What an easy, tasty meal! - 8/27/08
