Apricot and Lemon Chicken Breasts

After a long, unhealthy and fatty weekend, I decided we needed a bit of a healthy detox dinner…and hopefully that will carry on through the week!! I worked all day yesterday, got home tired and lazy, so I had to find something that was simple, quick, but still healthy and delicious!!

Ingredients: (for 4 people)
4 chicken breasts
salt and pepper
1tsp curry powder

Sauce:
1 cup apricot jam
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp water

Salad:
shredded lettuce
slices of cucumber
cherry tomatoes
spring onion

So easy to do…put togther the salad ingredients on a plate. The chicken will be served on top of the salad mix.
Mix together the salt, pepper and curry to make a dry seasoning, and rub all ove the chicken breasts. Cook on a well greased pan.
On a seperate pan, add the apricot, lemon juice and water, let them melt together and stir until smooth. Then pour onto the chicken breasts in the pan and let the chicken absosrb the juices.
Dish the chicken on top of the salad, pouring more sauce over the chicken and the salad, as a salad dressing too. Decorate the breasts with spring onion on top.

This meal is so light and tasty, and makes you feel healthy 🙂 and it forces you to eat the salad! I will defintely be eating this again…
