COOKING WITH CLORIS--APRICOT CHICKEN

Chicken is a mainstay in our home because it’s relatively inexpensive and good for you, especially if you don’t fry it! Today Cloris serves up a chicken breast recipe that my family loves. -- AP

APRICOT CHICKEN
(serves 4)

Ingredients:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 glove garlic, minced
1 can (14.5 - 16 oz.) diced tomatoes
4 oz. can mushroom stems and pieces, drained
1/2 cup dried apricots, diced
1/2 dried cranberries

Brown chicken in olive oil, approximately 4 minutes per side. Add garlic and mushrooms and cook a minute longer. Add tomatoes, apricots, and cranberries and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer covered approximately 5 minutes. Uncover and cook until sauce is desired consistency.

Thanks, Cloris! I know our readers will enjoy this dish. Readers, what’s for dinner at your house tonight? Post a comment to enter the drawing for a chance to win a book from our Friday Book Club guest author. -- AP
