Yummy Apricot Chicken Recipe

I've been trying to get a little more creative with my cooking lately. I've been experimenting with different herbs/spices, just trying to add a little more variety to my diet. I made this last night and it was pretty tasty. I'm going to try it with raspberry next time.

Apricot Chicken

1/2 c. sugar free apricot preserves ( I used Pollaner's)
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. chopped fresh sage or thyme ( I used thyme)
1 clove garlic, minced
4 small skinless, boneless chicken breasts

Preheat the broiler. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the apricot preserves, lemon juice, chopped sage/thyme, and garlic. Microwave for 15 seconds, and stir until well combined. Set aside half the sauce. Coat a baking dish with cooking spray. Place the chicken in the baking dish and brush with half of the remaining apricot sause. Broil for 6 minutes. Turn the chicken and brush with more apricot sauce. Return to the broiler and cook for another 6 minutes. Serve with remaining apricot sauce.
