Mix all the ingredients in a small sauce pan and heat over medium heat until hot, do not boil.
Place the chicken breast in a large zip lock bag and add the remaining ingredients. Close the bag and make sure all the chicken is covered with some of the liquid. Refrigerate 4 hours or longer if possible. Remove the chicken and discard the marinade. Grill until the chicken is cooked through. The last 5 minutes of the grilling time glaze the Chicken with the glaze. Serve the extra Glaze on the side.

    1. Hi Tammy,
      If I made it in the oven I would roast the chicken at 425 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour, until the chicken is cooked through. I might even baste it the last 15 minutes with the Apricot Glaze,that would be yummy. Hope you enjoy the chicken and thanks so much for stopping by!
      Have a great weekend,
      Miz Helen
