Tasty enough for company, yet simple enough for a weeknight meal. My kids gave this an A+. The toasted almonds totally dress is up. I think this sauce would taste great on pork too! Let us know if you try it!

DIRECTIONS

• 4 6 oz. chicken breast halves, boneless skinless
• 1/2 cup(s) almonds, sliced

• 1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce, low sodium
• 1 tbsp mustard

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9x13 baking dish (not glass) with cooking spray.
2. Pat chicken dry and season with salt and pepper. Arrange breasts 1/4 inch apart in a baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes.
3. At the same time, toast almonds in the oven on a small baking pan. (You'll need to stir a few times so almonds don't burn.)
4. Cook apricot preserves, soy sauce, mustard, butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Once preserves melt, pour over chicken and bake 10 more minutes.
5. Turn oven to broil and broil chicken for 2 minutes about 5 inches from top. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and serve.

I've made this same recipe twice - it's a new favorite! It's even good without the almonds if you don't have them on hand. But the almonds are a really nice touch. Enjoy!
