Apricot Chicken

When I was living with my grandpa in my mid-twenties and his doctor told him to go on a low-sodium diet, I was looking for main dishes that my grandpa might enjoy. I knew he liked Olive Garden’s Apricot Chicken, and I found a recipe that was supposed to be a copycat. Over the years I’ve updated and improved it so the chicken has more flavor and the sauce isn’t as runny.

If you’re making this gluten free, this is naturally gluten free–just make sure to use a new jar of jam or one dedicated gluten free so there aren’t any crumbs from previous sandwiches.
