A two-ingredient topping transforms plain-Jane poultry into a tangy treat for the whole gang.


  • ¼ cup apricot jam

  • ¼ teaspoon red-pepper flakes

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 6 ounces each)

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. In a small bowl, stir together jam and red-pepper flakes; set glaze aside.

  2. Place chicken on an aluminum-foil-lined baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. Broil until chicken begins to turn opaque, 5 to 6 minutes.

  3. Brush glaze on chicken. Broil until glaze is browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part of chicken registers 165 degrees, 4 to 5 minutes more.
