Tender chicken breasts glazed with apricot jam and sprinkled with lots of hazelnuts, a light, easy and delicious meal.
I hope you had a great Christmas time! Our was pretty good, not one thing I wish I could change. Family time, lots of friends coming to visit (well, that part is not over yet and won’t be until the 3rd of January, the day after my husband’s birthday), very good food (of course), lots of presents and so on… You know, that what Christmas is all about.
And although this Christmas I didn’t stress myself with cooking as much as last year, there still was lots of delicious food around and of course, we ate much more than we normally would. I am still to meet that person who is able to restrain him/herself from overeating during the Christmas days… We had cold platters for friends two days before Christmas Eve and we are still eating the leftovers for breakfast of dinner, then on Christmas Eve, Chicken Soup with Dumplings and Romanian cabbage rolls (sarmale) + dessert. And on Christmas day goose at my mother-in-law’s house. And Strawberry Mascarpone dessert… and cake… Yesterday, the leftover cabbage rolls, which taste even better when reheated a couple of times…
Or I would make these baked chicken breasts if I had some chicken in the freezer, which I don’t… Too bad, because the chicken was really so tasty I would not mind having it again after such a short time. I cooked it for the first time a couple of weeks ago, while on search for a savory recipe including hazelnuts. After a complete disaster with a broccoli hazelnut sauce for noodles, I had already decided I would only post sweet things including hazelnuts, but then I discovered this recipe and thought I would give it another try. I am glad I did, we all loved this dish very much (including the kids) and I am sure I will make it again.
Otherwise, enjoy the remaining days of 2016, I know I love this easy going time between Christmas and New Year.
