Apricot Fruit Spread

We have a beautiful Apricot tree that yields tons of fruit!  So this year instead of making Apricot Freezer Jam I'm going to freeze Apricot Fruit Spread.  I just made a cup of it to make sure it was wonderful AND IT IS!
---side note---I know I'm always saying things are AMAZING etc...everything I make is not amazing.  I only put the great stuff on the blog.  There is much that doesn't make the cut...in fact I made bran muffins the other day....trash can.  It was sad.


This is the same recipe as theHomemade Strawberry Fruit Spread.

Apricot Fruit Spread

1 cup crushed Apricots
1 T corn starch
2 T sugar
1/4 c water



I crushed the apricots in this handy tool.  I've had if for 5 years but just barely realized it...lol  That says bad things about my cupboard organization.

In a small bowl mix corn starch and sugar
add water
add mixture to crushed apricots (I took the skin off of mine) in a large microwave safe bowl
microwave for 10 min
DONE - makes about a cup


Keep in refrigerator…

Mango Salsa Chicken- SUPER Good!

Have you seen this baby at Costco?  I remember I bought it once last year and I was stressed out because I though it might go bad before I could use it all....lol.
Funny what stresses me out.

Anyway, my AMAZING friend Mindie told me about adding Mango Salsa to chicken and it is a FABULOUS meal!  I'm not sure if the ease of making it adds to the taste...

I used 2 chicken breasts - cut into strips
As much Mango Salsa as I needed to cover it


Basically you just dump it over chicken...lol...that's it.
Bake 30 - 45 min at 350.
You can also put the chicken in a freezer bag and just add in the salsa for a quick freezer meal.


This is a REALLY good, low calorie meal.  Almost too good, I have to watch my portion size with this one. :):)  I could easily eat most of the pan....my husband is always amazed at my eating skills.  lol
