Glazing chicken breasts with apricot preserves is an easy and delicious way to dress up your weeknight dinners. We add fresh thyme leaves and lemon zest to add extra brightness and herbaceousness. Serve the chicken with a side of potatoes, over a fresh salad, or stirred into pasta. Note: depending on the size of your chicken breasts, you may need to increase or decrease the initial cooking time by a few minutes.*
