Spicy Apricot Glazed Pork

This recipe was supposed to be for chicken but because the pork chops are still taking over my freezer I decided to use pork. I know I’m supposed to rave about the food that I make but this one gets an “ehh” Not a thumbs up or a thumbs down but a thumb in the middle. I’m not sure if we’ll have it again. I’m glad I tried it though. Maybe next time I’ll make it with the chicken instead. As you can tell from the recipe I didn’t use chicken but I think that I cooked the pork about the same amount of time as the chicken, maybe just a little longer.

This recipe came from my Everyday Food Magazine. More recipes from it will be coming this week. I’m not sure how much I will be posting in the coming weeks because my husband just took a job that has him working some nights (boo!!!) so it’s Leftover City for me! I don’t find it that fun to cook for one person! Now I understand why you eat cereal for dinner, mom!

On to the recipe and the pictures!

Spicy Apricot Glazed Chicken

source: Everyday Food


Serves 4

  • 1/4 cup apricot jam
  • 1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 6 ounces each)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. In a small bowl, stir together jam and red-pepper flakes; set glaze aside.
  2. Place chicken on an aluminum-foil-lined baking sheet; season with salt and pepper. Broil until chicken begins to turn opaque, 5 to 6 minutes.
  3. Brush glaze on chicken. Broil until glaze is browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part of chicken registers 165 degrees, 4 to 5 minutes more.


  1. Sorry it didn’t turn out the way you wanted. Can’t wait to see the next recipes you pick from Everyday Food. I really love the magazine and cookbook. I’ve had a few that were just o.k. but by and large all were yummy. I’ve been doing the alone dinners lately too. Can’t wait to get back to cooking full time again.

  2. Sorry it didn’t come out as well as you hoped. From the ingredients, I can see that there could be something else to add for more of a “pop”. We win some, we lose some!
