Coconut Chicken with Apricot Sauce

I don’t know if you guys have noticed, but I’m really not much of a meat girl. Rather than steaks and burgers and such, I prefer foods of the sweet variety and carb heavy foods like pasta and bread. Do you feel the same way? What can I say…chocolate and spaghetti are so much more satisfying!
I will however eat chicken. This particular recipe is right up my alley because it uses boneless, skinless chicken breasts plus it’s slathered in coconut and dipped in apricot preserves. Sweet makes everything better.

Note: I made the Apricot sauce as the recipe said but since I don’t like mustard, (actually I despise it) I didn’t enjoy the sauce. Big surprise. But I dipped the chicken in plain apricot preserves and that was fantastic. For those of you who like mustard, I’m sure that you’ll love this sauce paired with the coconut chicken.

    I made this the other night for dinner – it was delicious! Even my mom loved it and she’s always wary to try things that I cook :D
