chicken with apricot mustard sauce

another biggest loser recipe! (we are trying to eat healthy around here)!

1 Tbl. dried thyme
1 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 to 1 tsp. cayenne
1/8 tsp. salt
4 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
1/3 c. apricot 100% fruit preserves
2 Tbl. spicy brown mustard

preheat grill to high heat. ( we put them in the oven on the broiler about 400 degrees)

in small bowl combine all spices. mix to blend.

place chicken on a large plate. drizzle with oil. rub to coat both sides of the chicken evenly with the oil. sprinkle the seasoning mixture over both sides of the chicken. rub to coat evenly. cover with plastic wrap. refrigerate for at least 10 min. for the seasoning to flavor the chicken.

Meanwhile, spoon the preserves into a small microwavable bowl. cook on low power in 15 second intervals until melted. stir in the mustard until well blended. set aside.

place the chicken on the grill and reduce the heat to medium. (if it is not possible to reduce the heat, cook the chicken away from direct heat). Cook for 3 to 5 min. per side, or until no longer pink and the juices run clear. serve each breast with 2 1/2 Tbls. of the sauce spooned over the top.

*this was super super yummy!
