Recipe is good but I didn’t have Honey so I improvised added Sweet Honey Mustard & a dab of Dijon Mustard also I felt it was sweet needed a little acidity so I added a small amount of Lemon Curd, That made it even more delicious imo

Despite my mantra of 'never mess with Martha' I added a half a teaspoon of allspice, only 1 tbs of mustard, 250 g of apricot jam, 150g of home made quince paste/jam and 2 tbs of mango chutney and 1 tbs of honey and one of maple syrup. It was amazing! So tasty, not bland and everyone asked for more :)

I doubled the amount of chicken (16 thighs) without doubling the sauce and it was great. Used no sugar added (fruit only) apricot spread and added some curry powder. Next time, I will spray the baking dish with non-stick first, to improve the clean-up.

I used boneless skinless chicken thighs and it still tasted great. This is a fantastic recipe and quite easy. I would suggest also cutting back a bit on apricot jam - it was a bit too sweet. Other than that, a perfect and easy meal. I served over cous cous.

Can I use boneless chicken breasts instead of thighs?

Well, I made this in the crock pot tonight and it was good. I don't know if I will make it again though. It has a ton of sugar since it has a whole jar of jam in it.

I thought this was very good and quite simple. A little bit sweet so I plan to add more mustard next time. Cleanup was a bit of a pain with all that caked on, hardened jam on the baking dish.

I wonder if you could use sugar-free apricot jam for this recipe. Would the consistency of the glaze be the same. Any replies would be greatly appreciated!
